Better Bus Services

In response to my advocacy for late-night services from Kings Cross, the Minister for Transport has agreed to trial a new 999 NightRide bus service.

While the Government has responsed to my requests for additional 300 series bus services through Redfern and Surry Hills, it has cut services on the 200, 311, 326/327 and 501 routes. This forces many residents to use private vehicles, adding to traffic congestion, air pollution and greenhouse gases.
