Bus privatisation Commuter Action Day

July 7, 2017

A Commuter Action Day was held across the Inner West of Sydney on July 5 to oppose the state government’s proposed privatisation of Region 6 of the metropolitan bus network.

Volunteers gathered at bus stops across the inner west to speak to commuters, get signatures on petitions and hand out information about why privatising Sydney buses will result in worse services, cancelled routes and closed bus stops.

There are 233 routes in Region 6, with about 1300 workers based in the four depots to be privatised. Commuters take more than 42 million trips on these routes every year.
