Brissie Bus Drivers Reveal Next Stage Of Strike Action

A heads up about some more disruptions for commuters later this week, as the city's bus drivers continue their strike action over safety concerns on the job. 

On Thursday (July 27), there'll be FREE TRAVEL for all passengers because drivers are refusing to collect any fares. The refusal will end up costing taxpayers more than $500 million in lost income. 

The real issues, though, come on Friday, when drivers walk off the job during the entire afternoon peak.

Rail, Tram and Bus Union members will strike from 2-6pm, though Council's warned the impacts will be felt from as early as midday until 7pm. 

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk has called on the RTBU to put the safety of 23,000 school children first. 

There will be some more CityCat services put on, as a way to help make up for the shortfall in buses.
