Ride to Ryde by Electric Buses!
JOHN F BOOTH AM
Environmentally friendly clean and efficient electric buses could run on the Ryde route to the city within a year with State Government initiative and support.
This was claimed by leading transport engineer and National President of the Electric Vehicles Association of Australia Mr Roy Leembruggen at last weeks World Oil Crisis Forum in Ryde.
Forum was organised by Sydney St Georges Guild of former Scouts and Guides at the Guilds headquarters historic Addington Victoria Road Ryde and attended by a capacity audience.
Mr Leembruggen said modern advanced electric buses would provide cleaner and more economically and reliable public transport than yesterdays technology of trams and polluting fossil fuelled vehicles.
The Weekly Times introduced Mr Leembruggen to NSW Transport Minister, Deputy Premier and Ryde MP John Watkins over a year ago and is still awaiting a favourable response.
Otherwise hell have no alternative but to go to the shadow minister for Transport Barry OFarrell and Opposition Leader Peter Debnam.
