Opal machines turned off on Transit Systems buses in regions 3 & 6. Private bus operator Transit Systems runs the two regions, which service Parramatta, Liverpool and Fairfield as well as the entire inner west. But a Transit Systems spokeswoman said they anticipated many of the services would keep their Opal readers on for the day.
Bus drivers in Regions 3 and 6 of Sydney’s bus network voted convincingly in favour of taking action, with 97% and 92% voting in favour of taking action respectively. The votes allow drivers to take a range of industrial actions, including displaying union materials on buses, turning off Opal card readers and strike action.
