Quakers Hill Commuter Has Researched Transport History!

Brilliant gentleman commuter from Quakers Hills understands that train travelers on public transport is good he want ti see (like everyone else), expecting that required is quieter and  faster. With buses he feels that Quakers Hill is properly serviced as opposed to Mount Druitt - where more bus services are required.

He has experimented with his family (wife and three children) travelling by train from Quakers Hill to Blacktown Westfields and found it cheaper to go there by  private car.Then he provided his philosophy; if  we have expensive public transport less commuters will travel - whilst if we have more affordable public transport, then more commuters will use public transport.

The research the covered on public transport,  is the NSW Government collects $600M annually, collecting City Rail fares and  then there is the cost of $1.2B on a new Electronic Ticketing System (ETS) over the next few years. This is also based on fares being subsidised by the NSW Government.

Whilst he was doing this research, he didn't pick there in a public transport interest group, supporting commuters for public transport and was happy with that!

I'm impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both educative and engaging, and
without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is
something which not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
Now i'm very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for
something regarding this.
