Media stories about the proposed bus service changes
On 22 April 2009 the Sydney Morning Herald ran a story by Andrew West on the proposed changes to the 311 bus service:

In addition, Channel 10 ran a story on the proposed changes on its 5pm news on 22 April 2009. A great piece that we would like to put on the web. Will link to it if possible.
The Wentworth Courier and Central Courier are continuing to run stories:

Hop on the bus action – 22 April
We held a “hop on the 311 bus” action on 22 April, for which we invited the Minister for Transport (David Campbell) to “hop on the bus” and see the impact of the proposed changes to the 311 service for himself. He didn’t join us, and we rode the bus to the city, where we held an impromptu rally outside Governor Macquarie Tower just before 9am. A representative of the Minister refused to meet with us, as everyone in the Minister’s office was in a meeting.
