The NSW Government is privatising our remaining public buses.
That means Sydney’s buses are about to get even worse.
- On-time running will plummet
- Bus stops will close
- Services and routes will be cut.
In the current COVID-19 crisis, the continued push to privatise our buses and drive down our services is not just irresponsible, but also an insult to our frontline workers who are putting themselves in harms way to keep our communities moving.
Pushing ahead with the privatisation plans full stop is bad enough. Doing it in the midst of a global pandemic is disgraceful.
Will you take a moment to email your MP and ask them to stop this now?
We’ve built a simple tool you can use to email your state MP and ask them to oppose the privatisation of our buses. There’s even a template email asking them to take a formal pledge, which you can edit or replace with your own.
Public services like transport will be crucial to help us recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, providing employment and stability in Sydney’s transport network.
Premier Berejiklian promised us before the state election that no more public assets would be privatised. This isn’t what we voted for.
We can stop this decision in its tracks if we tell our representatives where we stand – and that we expect them to stand with us.
