The formal review started in January however various people from across Darwin, either as individuals or as representatives of local organisations, had previously contacted my Department and myself requesting changes. A few of these requests could be satisfied however, as many had network-wide or significant cost implications they were held over to become part of the review. One proposal which was implemented was the rural trial service requested by the Palmerston City Councils Seniors Advisory Committee. A new service - route 444 - ran for four months during which time passenger demand and travel patterns were recorded. This service ended on 6 February and the findings will contribute to the review when its focus shifts to the rural area. Following the regional data collection and community consultation processes options for new routes and timetables will be developed and presented back to the local community for comment. Only then will changes to services be introduced - changes which will take into account the feedback received.
