Save Toowong Buses!
This petition made change with 572 supporters!
Due to recommended changes in the SEQ bus network review, Translink will be stopping all serviced stops for the 470 and 416! Some of the stops along Milton Road will be replaced with a new route, however all of the stops off the main roads will no longer be serviced. Dean Street and Duke Street (and surrounding stops) will no longer have buses- at all. In fact, ALL buses servicing the West Toowong area will be removed- and not replaced!
This could mean from 500m up to 2km walk to the next nearest bus stop, often across busy and dangerous roads. This will have a huge impact on our community:
- Small children catching the bus to school forced to walk further- alone
- Elderly and disabled further to walk, longer to wait
- Longer days for working professionals
- Waste of exisiting infrastructure
Translink have come to these recommendations as they believe these services are not needed, and under used.
Saxon Rice, Member for Mt Cootha has offered support! Please sign the letter below to Saxon, for her to see how many people are behind the cause, and to show Translink they need to retain these services.
Let Translink know that these bus routes are needed!
Urge Translink to rethink!
