Bus privatisation will hit Inner West commuters hard

The NSW Government’s planned privatisation of Inner West bus services will result in worse not better transport for commuters across the region.

As the Member for Grayndler and the Shadow Minister for Transport I will fight alongside the public to prevent this privatisation from proceeding.

The sell-off of services will lead to routes being cut, jobs being lost, fares increasing and service levels dropping.

Hundreds of thousands of people in the Inner West, including workers, students and pensioners depend heavily on public bus services. Any reduction in services will have a real impact on their lives.

Andrew Constance has launched this attack on Inner West passengers without warning.

His actions have caused disruption to services and Premier Berejiklian should step in before the Minister does any more damage.
