Stop Bus Privatisation

 

Under privatisation, the private provider must make a profit from somewhere: bus services cut, bus stops closed down, longer journey times, or later buses. Ultimately, this decision will cause more congestion in Sydney.

During the NSW State Election, the Premier of NSW Gladys Berejiklian promised there would be no more privatisation. But on 24 October 2019, the NSW Government announced all remaining Sydney bus services will be privatised. This is a broken promise to the electors of NSW.

This petition calls on the members of the Legislative Assembly to stop the bus privatisation and focus on better bus services.
