RAIL Back On Track 2014 Public transport passenger survey

RAIL Back On Track a web based community support group for rail and public transport and an advocate for public transport passengers, is conducting a survey of how public transport passengers rate our public transport in south-east Queensland.  Everyone who travels on public transport in south-east Queensland is invited to participate.  Also anyone who avoids using public transport can also comment as to why they do not use public transport.

Gold Coast Light Rail is included for the first time in the annual survey.

Since RAIL Back On Track formed in 2006 we conducted our own annual member surveys on how members rate public transport.  Since 2011 we have opened our survey up to the public.

The survey is web based and all public transport passengers on the TransLink network in south-east Queensland are welcome to complete it.  The survey is anonymous and quick to complete.

The information from this survey will be used to acknowledge the gains and inform our ongoing efforts for improvements as needed.

Results of the survey, including comments, will be published promptly on the RAIL Back On Track discussion forum after the survey closes on the 1st December 2014.

On behalf of our members we extend an invitation to all citizens to drop by and fill out our survey.  Information is knowledge.  Knowledge leads to improvements.

The survey can be accessed directly here http://railbotforum.org/lime/index.php/254272/lang-en or simply follow the links from http://backontrack.org

Media release 2nd December 2014

SEQ: RAIL Back On Track's 2014 Public Transport Passenger Survey results now available!

Fare affordability bombshell!

RAIL Back On Track (http://backontrack.org) a web based community support group for rail and public transport and an advocate for public transport passengers has conducted a survey of how public transport passengers rate our public transport in south-east Queensland (1).  Anyone who travels on public transport in south-east Queensland was invited to participate.

Robert Dow, Spokesman for RAIL Back On Track said:

"Since RAIL Back On Track formed in 2006 we have conducted our own annual member surveys on how members rate public transport.  This year we again opened up our survey up to the public! There were 140  responses to our survey!"

"The survey was web based and all public transport passengers on the TransLink network in south-east Queensland were welcome to complete it.  The survey was anonymous and quick to complete."

"Results of the survey, including comments, are now publicly available on the RAIL Back On Track discussion forum (1)."

"On behalf of our members we thank those public transport passengers who took the time drop by and fill out our survey.  Information is knowledge.  Knowledge leads to improvements."

There are three key messages from the survey:

1.  The public thinks the present fares are much too expensive, but is happier with the go card system itself, although some aspects do need improvement. Despite the introduction of free travel after 10 journeys early in 2012, followed by the introduction of free travel after nine journeys mid 2012, affordability further worsened. Fare cuts have not worked, only proper fare reform will. 82% of survey respondents rated go card fares as expensive / extremely expensive.   It is time for a complete review of fares with community consultation.

2.  The service frequency of public transport, particularly rail out of peak and counter-peak, and bus and ferry, needs significant improvement. Bus network reform is needed

3.  The Gold Coast Light rail is a standout success.

If this doesn't get a decent path to fare reform then it will never be ...

I am sure the Opposition parties will outline reform.  Has the LNP dealt their cards?

There are a variety of ' bombshells ' ..  :P
