Fed up with getting kicked off the afternoon 775? sign now



School has just ended. You are in a rush to get home because you have piles of maths homework. You run to catch your bus...

The first 775 is there. It is a new bus (a rarity for our school), which is excellent seeing as sport was your last subject, and you need the air conditioning.

To your dismay, you see 150 students who have beaten you to it. Everyone is pushing to get on, despite the attempts of the transport prefect to control the mass trying to get on the bus. You realise that you are definitely not going to get on the bus. 'Oh well', you think. At least there is a second 775.

The second 775 arrives 15 minutes later. You come to another realisation. There are still approximately 80 students to get on that second bus. The second 775 is one of the old buses, and the legal limit for those is 28 sitting, 15 standing passengers. After applying your excellent maths skills to the situation, you come to the THIRD realisation that not everyone will get on.

After five minutes of bargaining with the bus driver, and making him see that there are still 37 people who need to get on, he CRAMS the bus full of people. Five minutes of cramming later, the driver has gone 27 students past the legal passenger limit, however there are still 10 students left outside.

Needless to say, you are one of them. It is already 3:30, and you must now wait 15 MORE minutes for a public bus. If that's not bad enough, the public bus stop requires a 200-metre walk from the school.

You arrive home 50 minutes late. You never manage to finish your maths homework, resulting in a Monday lunchtime detention.




Does this sound familiar? This is what the passengers of the Epping bus (775) of James Ruse Agricultural High School must endure every afternoon.

Numerous requests have been placed for a third 775 by staff, students and drivers who have seen the situation, yet no action has been taken yet.

Well, now it is time for all of us to contribute towards eventually receiving a third bus. If all of the students who catch the afternoon 775 sign this petition, we may have the numbers to convince Sydney Buses to give us the third bus which we evidently NEED.

If, like me, you are FED UP with being either cramped or kicked off the afternoon 775, then please, sign this petition. It is only with YOUR help that we can win this battle, and make transport from school more convenient.

Thanks for your contribution.
