|Mount Druitt Train Commuters|
He travels by car to Mount Druitt and parks his car in a car spot on the south side, coming from Erskine Park. He then catches a Cityrail train and changes at Town Hall/Wynyard train stations (depending how he feels) and then catches a bus to Lane Cove taking 16-20 minutes, overall trip 1 1/2 hours.
Overall he finds travelling on public transport so relaxing and enjoying , not worrying of driving onto heavily clogged roads like Victoria Road where traffic moves as fast as a snail at times.
What a man! I caught him travelling without his wife on the train, which he says she always travels with him but not today(yesterday) and if only she heard him say what he said to me - once heard she would have definitely feel so proud of him. So what did he say? 'I owe credit to my wife as she has been travelling on public transport for 8 years and she ask me to convert to public transport!'
This is where he is saying money on fuel, further running costs on cost and better livability now.
His main issue is not that big to him but it is important for him to have a better lifestyle and others that catch trains at Mount Druitt train station. He issues are that the intercity trains from Central to Mount Druitt use to stop Parramatta, Blacktown and Mount Druitt, they are now stopping Parramatta, Blacktown and all stations to Penrith. He feels that as Mount Druitt is becoming a major transport hub, due to increased population and public transport increased patronage (like himself), considerations should be made to revert back to the better express intercity train that was provide to him before!
Not a bad suggestion - I don't think this will fall in on deaf ears! Cityrail listens!
