That this House:

  1. Notes the Minister for Transport has ordered the removal of seating at Inner West train stations, replacing them with seating rails.
  2. Considers that this is an example of hostile architecture, designed to give the homeless fewer places to sleep, but also makes commuting more difficult for seniors and people with disability.
  3. Considers that this decision follows the removal of bus stops in the inner west and the deferral of accessibility upgrades at key inner west stations.
  4. Calls on the Minister for Transport to halt removing seating at train stations and to work to make public transport more, not less, accessible.
