TO: The Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly
This petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that bus network changes substantially inconvenience Belconnen residents by:
- removing the 712, 714, 717, 743 and 744 Xpresso buses;
- eliminating school buses taking Belconnen students to and from Canberra Grammar School, Canberra Girls' Grammar School, St Clare's College, St Edmund's College and Daramalan College; and
- reducing the frequency of the 40 bus in the Aranda area during both morning and afternoon peak hours despite requests for increased service.
For many students, workers and families, this means significantly more time spent commuting from 29 April 2019.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the Assembly to call upon the ACT Government to restore these bus services or provide an equivalent or better alternative.
