Dona Maitland started this petition to Families of Inmates and

this petition respectfully seeks a public transport bus service from Palmerston to Holtz Corrections to run 7 days per week. no public transport to Howard Springs corrections (Holtz) creates hardship for families of inmates. Undermines rehabilitation of inmates as difficult to stay connected to family. Increases cost of all services to Holtz. Does nothing for sustainability i.e. public transport would reduce car use thereby car emissions. Moving Youth Detention nearby adds to the need.

As a comparison, No. 7 bus Darwin Bayview runs Monday to Friday with 3 passengers. While a bus to Howard Springs corrections has potential for 100s of passengers i.e Holtz corrections is at capacity with >1600 inmates. 

The shuttle bus service provided by Salvation Army is unreliable. Impacts of covid and repairs sees the service more times unavailable.  Women and children walk to and from Holtze, an extremely inhospitable journey. 

Please give consideration to a public transport bus service from Palmerston to Holtze corrections.
