Results of the "Community Pulse" survey by Cumberland-Courier newspapers have given an interesting result for public transport.
"Almost half the people who responded to the Cumberland-Courier Newspapers Community Pulse Survey said public transport in Sydney was usually on time, and worth paying for.
Sixty per cent said public transport was safe, 73 per cent said it was easy to use and 62 per cent said it was convenient.
Almost 20 per cent said public transport in their suburb was very good, 33 per cent said it was good and 27 per cent said it was average. Just 10 per cent said it was poor while 6 per cent said it was very poor" reported the Fairfield newspaper.
This is reasonably consistent with the survey done by the Independent Transport Safety and Reliability Regulator (ITSRR) earlier this year - (see a previous WSPTU blog entry).
Given the current level of public debate and the controversy around public transport issues, this is particularly interesting.
