An Open Letter to Sydney Commuters
Transport Minister Andrew Constance has just announced that all public bus services across Inner Western and Southern Sydney will be privatised in July 2018.
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.
Send a complaint to Constance to let him know we must keep our public transport in public hands.
