Need for your thoughts on PBS
THE National Transport Commission has released a discussion paper which presents first findings of an evaluation into the PBS scheme and possible ways to improve it.
NTC Chief Executive, Paul Retter said the purpose of this evaluation is to look at ways to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the scheme, in response to Australia’s growing freight task.
“Road freight is projected to increase by 26 per cent in the next 10 years. PBS vehicles are well placed to assist industry and government in coping with this forecasted growth.
“We need to continue improving the scheme to promote greater uptake of these vehicles,” Mr Retter said.
Submissions in response to this discussion paper will be accepted until 5pm Monday, October 9, 2017 via the NTC website.
