Fix My Ride
Our rail and public transport networks are crying out for investment, but the Federal Government is failing to build the transport infrastructure we desperately need. This Federal election, tell Australia's politicians to #FixMyRide.
Are you sick and tired of long hours commuting to and from work?
Do you wish you had access to more convenient and reliable public transport services?
Are you frustrated that Governments find billions to spend on roads but rail and public transport is constantly overlooked?
Do you think it's time for the Federal Government to start treating rail public transport seriously?
Well here's you chance to have your say!
This Federal election, we're getting together to tell our politicians to #FixMyRide because transport congestion is a dead weight on the national economy, and it requires a national solution. That's why we need our national politicians to take action, and to start investing in better rail and public transport networks.
We're calling on politicians from all parties to deliver better rail and public transport infrastructure so we can all have a better ride.
Where do the major parties stand?
