Mount Druitt made history today when the Blacktown City Council Transport Forum was held for the first time in Mount Druitt in the new 'Hub' of Mount Druitt. The facilities are a great asset to provide modern building with exemplary amenities that places a new identity in Mount Druitt, that community members can associate with and use.
It was also noted that in relation to Blacktown Bus shuttle - all Bus Shuttle are up for their yearly review in March 2012. Rudi Svarc - Blacktown City Council Transport & Projects Officer has advised the Forum that Blacktown has made a recommendation to the NSW For Transport for a Free Bus Shuttle in Mount Druitt, which it has approved and was waiting for a response and that the Blacktown Free Bus shuttle was recording good patronage.
Blacktown Train Station has had heavy presence of transit officer reducing fare invasion crimes and riding of this anti social behaviours, this has a positive affect on the commuters who also feel safer while these officers are around. There were issues raised of bicycle racks locked up - that was open to discussion.
