RE­SPONSE

Isis Town and Country - - News -

SOUTH Bundy Buses man­ag­ing direc­tor Richard Hayes has de­fended the changes.

Mr Hayes said ev­ery bus in Childers was changed, as the com­pany fol­lowed a di­rec­tive from the Depart­ment of Trans­port and Main Roads.

He ex­plained changes were made to timeta­bles, and South Bundy Buses would keep a close eye on how they ran.

Mr Hayes also said they would con­tinue to re­view the new times.

The South Bundy Buses web­site said all routes and timeta­bles were un­der re­view, with up­dates to be made avail­able when fi­nalised.

“At this point in time th­ese pro­posed changes from the trans­port depart­ment are not fi­nalised,” the web­site reads.

Mem­ber for Bur­nett Stephen Bennett said he would do what he could to help both sides.

Mr Bennett said he had kept an open dia­logue with Main Roads, and said that had to con­tinue to en­sure re­sults.

“We’re con­tin­u­ing to work with the depart­ment but with gov­ern­ment in care­taker mode, there isn’t much we can do,” Mr Bennett said.

“The ac­tual out­comes might not be as ideal than ini­tially hoped. Main Roads have to talk to the com­mu­nity.

“This is about kids get­ting their ed­u­ca­tion but things haven’t hap­pened (dis­cus­sions at higher level) be­cause of Christ­mas and the elec­tion.”
