Urge to restore East Coast bus service Calows Coaches) to include Launceston Airport parameter drop-off and pick-up service to commuters from the St Helens and surrounding areas

Residents in the East Coast of Tasmania are in a desperate need of a bus service directly to the airport. Taxi and Uber are not feasible addition to a 2.5 hours or 150kms bus ride to reach the airport destination. It is a long journey to the airport from places like St Helens, Scamander, St Mary’s at the best of times but the trip is being made even more difficult by not allowing the bus st drop off on it’s way to your airport on its way to Launceston. Instead you need to continue to the bus depot and catch an airport shuttle or taxi, unnecessarily  adding another 40 minutes and longer to the ordeal. The result causing stress and anxiety to people particularly pensioners (making the majority of the population in those areas) also for tourists to these destinations looking to use our transport system. We need to make the East Coast as accessible and attractive as possible to out tourist.

I feel the revenue impact on the alternate shuttle / taxi service industry will be absolute minimal as it is specifically catering for regional uses needing this express option. The benefits to the small proportion of regional users in need of this service will be immeasurable.

Please sign this petition to make commuting to and from St Helens and surrounding areas easier for all.
