ACTION Bus Services - Kippax

The petition read as follows:

To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory:

The petition of certain residents of the ACT draws to the attention of the Assembly the proposed cuts and changes to Bus Service 409 to Kippax. The 409 Bus Service is the sole means by which many in the Scullin area, and in particular the aged and physically handicapped residents of Collingrove Units, gain access to the health, banking, shopping, library and postal services at Kippax. The Deputy Chief Minister and Minister for Urban Services, Mr De Domenico, in Bus Book 96, gave his commitment to the "most efficient and effective public transport service in the country".
