PETITION FOR A GONG SHUTTLE HYDROGEN BUS TRIAL


To the Minister for Transport and Roads, and the Minister for Environment and Energy, this petition of concerned residents brings to your attention the Wollongong community's enthusiastic support for the development of a green hydrogen industry and Hydrogen Hub in the Illawarra.

The Wollongong community notes the encouragement of the NSW Hydrogen Strategy to 'get involved' and seek funding for different hydrogen initiatives.

We petition the NSW Government to:

1) Trial and test the feasibility of decarbonising transport with hydrogen by using the free Gong Shuttle as a hydrogen bus trial, and
2) Use NSW made buses as part of the free Gong Shuttle fleet to conduct this hydrogen bus trial.
