The Sydney Ferries sell off announced today by the O'Farrell Government could lead to job cuts, service cuts and fare increases for passengers.
Leader of the Opposition John Robertson said it was a sad day for Sydneysiders, whose iconic green and yellow ferry services are being auctioned off to the highest bidder.
"The iconic green and yellow Sydney Ferries are part of the fabric of Sydney but today the Government has moved to sell them off," he said.
"Premier O'Farrell's pledge to increase services, whilst cutting $40 million from the Sydney Ferries budget, simply doesn't add up.
"The Premier is trying to say that 2 + 2 = 1, but it is the commuters of Sydney that will end up short-changed.
