Translink's proposed changes to the 609 bus service

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Muriel Bates
8b Kennedy Parade

Total Signatures - 2132

Sponsoring Member: Hon Mark McArdle MP

Posting Date: 16/10/2013

Tabled Date: 16/10/2013

Responded By: Hon Scott Emerson MP on 14/11/2013

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

The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House Translink's proposed changes to the 609 bus service route servicing Caloundra, Golden Beach and Pelican Waters, due to come into effect by late 2013.  The changes include bypassing Oxley St and Golden Beach Esplanade (one of the busiest and centrally located strips in the area), which residents, many elderly, feel will leave them stranded.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to review the proposed changes to the 609 bus service route, carry-out further consultation with Caloundra residents and stakeholders, and reinstate Golden Beach Esplanade as a bus stop along this route.
