What happens after the trial has concluded?
The Public Transport Authority (PTA) will review the trial at the end of the period, and depending on patronage numbers, will choose to extend or cancel the service. Using public transport in place of driving reduces traffic congestion, and at the same time allows bus patrons time to read, listen to music and relax on their way to work!

Is there parking facilities near the bus stops?

Why should I catch the bus instead of driving?
Because substituting public transport for private car use has a range of benefits for individuals, including reduced fuel costs and reduced vehicle running costs. It's good for your hip pocket and good for the environment!
