"But car transport expenses, like CTP insurance and licenses, have also gone up, so it's not as if public transport has been singled out. Given some of the spending, I think public transport has done ok (not brilliant, but ok) from the budget."

Hi Kenneth and welcome to Look For Cyclists and Vote For Cyclists. This week I added to the former under 'How to design for cyclists' and 'How NOT to design for cyclists'. Notice in your photo that you have young children, plus a cargo bike. There is an AC group for parents with children, also cargo and utility cycling. Cheers, Heather
