Don't sell our busses
Don't sell our busses

Transport Minister Andrew Constance has just announced that all public bus services across Inner Western and Southern Sydney will be privatised.

Mr Constance’s plan, which would come into effect in July next year includes:

  • Privatising 233 bus routes across Sydney, almost a third of the system
  • Slashing the jobs of 1200 bus drivers and public transport workers

This will cause disruptions across Sydney and likely lead to bus stop closures, higher fares, changing of routes and a reduction in services.

And we know this is just the first step. All NSW Public Transport is under threat from this new privatisation agenda.

Mr Constance thinks the privatising our buses will stop the complaints. We need to show him he is wrong.

Sign the Petition to send a complaint to Constance and let him know we must keep our public transport in public hands.

Read the petition text

Dear Minister Constance,

As concerned members of the community we are writing to reject your proposal to privatise Sydney public bus services.

Your decision was undertaken with absolutely no consultation with the community and despite written assurances to workers last December that bus routes would not be privatised.

Private operators put profits before people. To make money they’ll slash services, close bus stops and cut back on maintenance.

Where does this stop? Are you planning to privatise all remaining public bus and train services?

We urge you to immediately withdraw your proposal to privatise Sydney’s public bus services and make a public commitment not to privatise any other public transport services in NSW.

  • Transport Minister Andrew Constance has just announced that all public bus services across Inner Western Sydney will be privatised in July 2018.

    This means over one third of Sydney’s public bus services will be privatised. Over 233 routes.

    And we know this is just a first step. This announcement means all public bus services and trains across Sydney are at risk.

    Add your name below to tell Transport Minister Andrew Constance to stop the Sydney public transport sell off.
