Transport user survey for Darwin

Commuters in Darwin are being encouraged to participate in the Public Transport User Survey

The Northern Territory Government has launched a survey on the public transport system to gauge public’s opinion on safety, priorities for improvement and ideas for improvement.

Minister for Transport Peter Styles says the Public Transport User Survey is designed to provide information which can be used by Government to inform policy.

"The Northern Territory Government wants public opinion on transport safety, priorities for improvement and to present ideas for improving public transport in Darwin," he says.

 "The results of the survey may assist in future changes to the operation of the public transport network."

The Government has introduced a number of changes recently, after the Department of Transport undertook a comprehensive risk assessment of security on the public transport network.

"Safety and security on the public transport network remains a key priority for Government and we are committed to improving the safety and wellbeing of drivers and passengers on public transport," says Styles.

Candidate for Casuarina Harry Kypreos is pleased the Territory Government is listening to Darwin residents by offering this survey as a channel for public comment and ideas.

"The community should feel safe every time they step onto a bus, I encourage those who use the transport system to actively become involved and let the government know what matters to them the most."

The survey is open for people to complete online until October 31.
