I’ve already written a fair bit about the proposed cuts to ACTION Buses (see here and here), but RiotACT recently mentioned that the Transport Workers Union were handing out postcards for people to sign and post to Chief Turnip Jon Stanhope. RiotACT only had a tipoff at that stage, and I have been waiting to get my hands on a postcard before saying anything.
Yesterday evening on my way home from work I was very pleased to have the bus driver hand me a postcard. The postcards contain some background information on the proposed cutbacks, and even feature a reply paid address so that you don’t have to pay to send them. The postcards go to the Transport Workers Union who will then present them to the Chief Turnip.
I will be filling my one out and sending it in, but I have taken the liberty of doing a couple things first.
I have scanned the postcards for your benefit, and I have also produced a downloadable form for those of you who wish to convey your disappointment with the proposed cutbacks, but do not have access to a postcard. You will need to mail the form and pay for the postage (50 cents, surely that’s not an issue) as I’m not sure of the legalities of simply mailing something to a reply paid address if it is not officially printed. The download link for the form (in Acrobat PDF format) can be found below.
If you would like to convey your disappointment with the proposed cutbacks to ACTION, to the Chief Turnip, click here to download the form. When you have filled it in, please post it to
