NSW For Transport - Masterplan

Click here for NSW For Transports Masterplan

Give your thoughts to whether it talks about improved public transport - One thing I have noticed is, they are talking about widening roads when we could be looking at expanding public transport modes of transport.

Not much of advertising to the community (especially widespread), of increasing public transport - looking at meeting needs based on cost funding - did they invite local transport community groups. Not as yet.

And we as community activists are a priceless stakeholder - I think they need to localise planning of  public transport to large shopping hub areas, inclusive of community input, separate to Local Councillors input.

I personally would like to see local transport boards set up  and run by Commuters, allowing for input and feedback to all Transport Officers or even more community involvement in Council Transport Forums.
