Route appeal setback

THE supreme court has probably put the final nail in the coffin for an attempt by a community group to get the full raft of stops for the old bus route 15 from Perth CBD to Glendalough reinstated.

It was a long fight and local Tad Krysiak gave them a run for their money, forming the Seniors and Disables Bus Action Group to take the fight through the courts when stops were cut from the route in 2015.

The PTA reckoned the route was under-used but Mr Krysiac claimed discrimination because it left a lot of disabled people without transport.

“I haven’t had a chance to look at the judgment but apparently it didn’t go very well, we came a cropper,” he said after the hearing on April 13.

He has a couple more cards up his sleeve: “I’ve just sent off final submissions for our complaint to the Human Rights Commission, which is federal, plus we’ll be working with the new Labor government to hopefully get some compromise.”
