Changing the bus operator for the Inner West region does not address the underlying problems with traffic congestion and the government’s data justifying the decision ignores the number of bus services and usage.

Steps like bringing in longer buses, removing bus stops and changing operators cannot address the underlying problems. I’ve lodged questions in Parliament about inner west bus plans HERE.
