Our organisation's year runs from October to September, and this report covers our activities during that period. We continue to meet every Friday evening to discuss the week's news and to plan tactics. Other dialogue is maintained by email and telephone when quicker responses are required. We can send a media release to the morning newspapers by 4 pm following a ministerial announcement at lunchtime.

The decisive event of the year was the change of government in New South Wales following the March 2011 election. No immediate changes are expected, but plans for reorganisations are no doubt being developed. The new government is forecast to retain office until at least 2019, and so will have time to implement far-reaching innovations.

We continue to maintain formal and informal contact with administrators of most areas of public transport, and also make submissions to a wide range of enquiries and reviews.
