Thank you to those community members who have contacted my office to express their concern at the pending removal of this service. I appreciate the community concern over this important issue and can assure residents I am working with the Minister around feasible solutions for the future should this service be cancelled. We do understand that everyone has different reasons for using the Hinterland Connect and that the cancellation of this service is going to have an impact on many individuals. I intend to make my own submission to Translink’s final review process on behalf of the community members that have made contact with me. I would also encouraging users of the Hinterland Connect bus to submit their comments to Translink by 7 April 2013 – www.translink.com.au or call 13 12 30.
