Commuters beware that there are representatives on Parramatta train in the Mornings seeking to take valuable Commuters time for a valuable important survey. They are interviewing commuters who will provide details of their original mode of transport, from their origin address where they left, until you reached Parramatta. They will then work your transport corridor that got you to Parramatta Station and when asked what is intended with the survey, they say they are looking to improve public transport services around Parramatta area! So please don't look dangerous, be warned of these friendly NSW for Transport representatives, be friendly as they use caution to approach you and after completing the survey, one day you will notice improvement in public transport around Parramatta.
Responses to the NSW Long-Term Transport Masterplan are due by October 26, 2012. An alliance of organisations including the Western Sydney and Macarthur Regional Organisation of Councils (WSROC and MACROC) and the University of Western Sydney have organised a Forum to discuss the Masterplan. There will be several guest speakers including the NSW Transport Minister, Hon. Gladys Berejiklian MP.

Thanks to students from the design team at the Rabbithole at UWS. They devised the WSPTU website just over a year ago - and we have had a lot of great feedback from people visiting our website. Here they get a great mention in the local paper. For the full story click here
