Responded By: Hon Scott Emerson MP on 22/04/2013

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draw to the attention of the House that the method adopted for the feedback process for the South East Queensland (SEQ) Bus Network Review inherently excluded many commuters, particularly the elderly and disadvantaged who are largely dependent on public transport, from participating in the survey about the SEQ Bus Network Review.

Queensland residents, therefore, requests the House to extend the consultation period and adopt a more comprehensive methodology to ensure a more thorough review is undertaken, in particular, to ensure that the diverse range of bus commuters are able and supported as needed to provide feedback in alternative and additional forms to an online survey.

Queensland residents, therefore, request the House to seek expert advice about the most appropriate methodology to effectively communicate with the diverse range of bus commuters and subsequently adopt best practice so as to ensure a comprehensive response is derived from the diverse range of bus commuters in order to provide a thorough and reliable basis for any rationalisation and/or termination of services in the SEQ Bus Network.
