More Support For Blake's Proposed Mount Druitt Free Bus Shuttle Run!

A  lady commuter who I see regular at nights on trains, finally had seen the proposed Blake's Mount Druitt Free Bus Shuttle Run. To her surprise she was proud of young 'Blake' for presenting this great concept and idea to the community. She could see how it provide fantastic linkage to main amenities around the area, even to important area like Rooty Hill RSL, Novotel Hotel and Hospital. She could see a lot of commuters leaving their cars at home and spreading the work of continually using this for of trans, which commuters of Mount Druitt Need.

A regular Busways bus driver has recently commented to me that a majority of bus drivers would like to see it as a benefit to the community and also providing more jobs for bus drivers.

While it is free to the commuter, it costs $650,000 per annum to fund 2 buses going around the loop. My idea als well as a few others is that this maybe be partly funded by Westfield , Rooty Hill RSL and any other businesses that wish to contribute. So far I have had a negative response from Westfield not saying they want to support it or not. I think they then think they will lose shoppers - but in actual fact they don't lose shoppers shoppers have  better chance to choose and decide on where they want to shop and it may promote more opportunities for community members to shop at Westfield as well - your thoughts are appreciated!
