The requirement to fervently talk up the Canberra Liberals' proposed overhaul of the ACTION bus system pitch was not lost on Alistair Coe this week. With public transport policy the single most contentious issue of October's Territory election (courtesy of the Barr government's nascent Gungahlin to Civic light rail project and the Liberals' vow to undo it regardless of cost should it win office), the Opposition's Transport spokesman described his party's election pitch on Thursday as "probably the biggest transport reform ever proposed by a government or opposition in the ACT".
