PETITION TO SAVE THE $250 REGIONAL SENIORS TRAVEL CARD
To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of New South Wales.
Citizens of New South Wales, call on the New South Wales Government to continue the Regional Seniors Travel Card.
Since 2020, the Regional Seniors Travel Card has helped more than one million eligible seniors living in regional NSW with cost-of-living expenses by providing $250 to spend on petrol, taxis or public transport to help get them to appointments or do the weekly grocery shop.
The undersigned petitioners therefore ask the New South Wales Government to continue the regional seniors travel card program following the four-year trial period (2020-2023).
Seniors right across regional, rural and remote NSW love the Regional Seniors Travel Card, but it’s under threat from Chris Minns and Labor who won’t say if they’ll keep the card in the hands of the people who need it during this cost of living crisis.
Removing the program will force people in the regions to pay more for travel.
Chris Minns must come clean and tell us if he’s going to cut the Travel Card program or not.
Sign the petition above to SAVE THE REGIONAL SENIORS TRAVEL CARD
