Eastern Transport Coalition continuing the fight for fair public transport fares

By September 14, 2006No Comments

Tonight’s Eastern Transport Coalition Meeting focused on the ‘fair fare’ campaign with a survey being developed which aims to ascertain the extent in which zone three penalises public transport users and encourages the practice of driving to areas such as Heatherdale to avoid paying for the additional zone. This research will help present a case to call on the removal of zone three and minimise the price hike between fare zones.

Other items discussed include the need to directly candidates and MPs in the lead up to the State Election to ensure that the goals of the Eastern Transport Coalition and the need for better public transport are fully understood and appreciated.

I also discussed the parking difficulties at Croydon Station and a letter will be issued by the Eastern Transport Coalition to seek additional parking and better bus services for Croydon.
