Put Transport Into the Fast Lane
Australian transport networks are slow, congested, expensive to use and falling apart.
That’s having an impact of productivity, jobs and the amount of time we can all spend with family and friends.
We need comprehensive plan to deliver faster, safer, better transport – for both people and freight.
At this Federal election, Vote 1 for candidates who will put transport into the fast lane.
Transport workers have had enough. They are demanding action to make our transport networks, safer, cheaper and more effective. They also want to see more good, secure jobs in the rail and public transport industries.
You can show support for our campaign by signing the Fast Lane petition here.
The Fast Lane Pledge
The RTBU is asking Federal election candidates to endorse a pledge committing to action on better public transport and freight networks.
You can download a copy of the pledge here: Fast Lane Candidate's Pledge.
All Federal election candidates who wish to endorse the pledge can email confirmation, and a photo, to the RTBU National Office at rtbu[at]rtbu.org.au
