With my figures provided to me before on bus stops approximately 1600 in Blacktown LGA with spent on them* $600,000 (Announced by former Mayor as mentioned above) that means $375.00 per stop - that will pay for the bus stop sign on each bus stop. with addition $80,000 that represents $50 per bus stop - that might provide a small concrete step when you leave the bus!
Another interesting quote from Councillor Allan Bleasedale is that 60 percent of Community members do not have easy access to Public Transport within Blacktown LGA - I would like to know where he got these figures from, I could believe up to 40 percent yet I am unsure where these figures are from.
* I need clarification from Council if this is right or night!
Editors comments: We believe from a BCC spokesperson, that the $80,000 is to be added for current 'Work In Progress' otherwise known as 'WIPS' not new bus stops - response dated 22/5/2012
