Translink Review needs to reduce public transport fares

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Chris Kelly
PO Box 196
Lawnton QLD 4501

Total Signatures - 197

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 18/09/2015

Closing Date: 16/10/2015

Tabled Date: 27/10/2015

Responded By: Hon Jackie Trad MP on 26/11/2015

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that in the last six years public transport fares have more than doubled making it unaffordable for many people and increasing traffic congestion. Recent Translink surveys show that less than half of public transport users now think it is affordable.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to ensure that the Translink Fare Review Taskforce cut fares to encourage more people onto public transport and reduce traffic congestion.
