The New South Wales government has announced that standard Opal fares will apply on the free Gong Shuttle (Wollongong route 55, green line on this map) from 29 January 2018.
The service is popular, not only on weekdays. It obviously removes many hundreds of car trips daily from Wollongong streets, with environmental social and economic benefits. Unsurprisingly, residents would like it to remain free.
Help us persuade the NSW government to reverse the decision.
