Newcastle Buses Petition Goes To State Parliament

BY IAN CROUCH

Around 100 people will travel to state parliament this afternoon to deliver a petition of 20,000 thousand signatures calling for a review of Newcastle buses.

Commuters have been complaining in large numbers since the bus network and timetables were overhauled in January, with many saying popular routes have been cut and services are turning up late or not at all.

Hamilton resident, Patricia Mulligan has collected 3000 signatures and says the changes have had a massive impact on the elderly.

"...and even going up to Beaumont Street, that 201 has been taken away and also we can;t get to Aldi because there's no 201 that goes over there, which was very convenient and people here enjoy having that bus and it was really good," she said.
