Here is an article from the Mount Druitt - St Marys Standard newspaper, regarding possible doubt of the Proposed Mount Druitt Free Shuttle Bus - We will still persist in obtaining signatures for this petition:
Shuttle in doubt as services cut
A FREE shuttle bus for the Mt Druitt area is less likely to go ahead after the State Government dumped seven shuttle services, including Blacktown and Penrith, due to low patronage.
The $7 million spent by the State Government on running taxpayer-funded shuttles each year will instead be invested in new bus and train services.
Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian said the patronage figures showed most of the shuttles only carried a handful of people each trip.
“We can’t afford to be wasting millions of dollars a year on ghost services that are not used,” she said.
Mt Druitt Commuters Improvement Group president Angela Plows was devastated. She said they had a 1700-signature petition for a free shuttle bus in Mt Druitt.
“We have lost so many bus services already in the area – what’s next?” she said.
