Warning Commuters On Parramatta Station!

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.
