Electors of the Division of Bundaberg draws to the attention of the House the operator will require passengers going to the airport to make a booking prior to taking a flight but will take walk-ups on return service from the airport, that is, without a prior booking.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to clarify in legislation that:

1. persons have freedom of choice between the use of shuttle services, taxis or other public transport at airports;
2. persons who book a shuttle service in advance have priority over walk-ins; and
3. airport management provide an opportunity for persons to book spaces on shuttle buses at a counter or other designated space as designated by management.
