Penny Sharpe, duty MLC for Willoughby and NSW Shadow Minister for Transport, has slammed the O'Farrell Government's decision to increase public transport fares for commuters travelling from Willoughby to the city by public transport by up to $104 a year.
"The O'Farrell Government's decision to increase public transport fares is a slap in the face for local commuters," Ms Sharpe said.
