Queensland citizens draws to the attention of the House the reduction of train services between Bundaberg, Maryborough, Hervey Bay and Brisbane. Elderly residents of the Wide Bay rely heavily on regular train services to Brisbane to access specialist medical treatment not available locally.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to do all in its power to ensure the replacement of each lost return train service with wheelchair accessible buses as a matter of urgency.
