Citizens Public Transport Forum

This forum has been mounted by Rail Back on Track, a community group with which you may be familiar from the CM, 612, BrisTimes, MX where Bob Dow, the spokesperson, is constantly being asked his comment on the latest public transport stuff-up or even positive development.

You can see from the list of speakers that the big end of the PT bureaucracy is turning up to be scarified by the public. Oh, and a couple of gadflies, Chris Hale and my good self, to provide a bit of a contrast to the official lines. I expect the audience to be quite critical of the officials.
