Newcastle MP, Tim Crackanthorp says the city’s privatised bus network has failed the most vulnerable members of the community.

He used question time in parliament to raise the plight of more than 100 disabled people who work for Access Industries and have been severely impacted by changes to the bus timetables.

Tim Crackanthorp asked Transport Minister, Andrew Constance to now admit the privatised network has failed the people of the Hunter.

The Minister rejected suggestions services for disabled people had been cut and said he was happy to meet with the Newcastle MP to hear his concerns.
