Scrap the airport station surcharge!

One of the main justifications for WestConnex is to improve connections to the airport. But despite costing $17 billion and growing rapidly, the tollway goes nowhere near it. Meanwhile, passengers and airport workers are slugged with the $13.40 'station access fee', if they choose to leave their cars at home and catch the train.

This ridiculous penalty must be stopped. When a similar fee was removed from Mascot and Green Square stations, patronage jumped by 70%, taking countless cars off the road, freeing up this precious resource for those who actually need to drive.

This fee is also an embarrassment to Australia as foreign tourists first and last memory of our country is being ripped off for catching public transport.

When the station access fee is removed, one of the key justifications for WestConnex falls away. This simple change can also be made without destroying any homes, trees, or precious parks.

We therefore call upon the Premier Mike Baird and the Minister for Transport Andrew Constance to immediately scrap the station access fee at Domestic and International stations.
