Help keep Newcastle’s public transport in public hands
The NSW Government’s plans to privatise Newcastle’s buses, ferries and light rail are still well and truly on the agenda.
If this is allowed to happen, it would be disastrous for local workers and the region as a whole – a region which is already reeling from the Baird Government’s decision to rip up the heavy rail line into the city.
The government’s intention to bundle up the bus, light rail and ferry network and sell it off to a private company is a classic case of putting profits ahead of people, and will put services and local jobs at risk.
The more signatures we get, the greater chance we have of protecting our public transport.
