Joe Natoli #freetransit advocate many years ago

Free buses? | Noosa News (2008): "Joe Natoli believes free public transport is the answer to Coast traffic gridlock.

But he says the state government will not have a bar of it.

Mr Natoli has "strong views" on the need for public transport, as does rival candidate and Noosa mayor Bob Abbot.

Mr Natoli said that at the local government conference "five or six years ago", he proposed the state government do a cost-benefit analysis of free public transport, against the cost of retrofitting roads.

"I propose to allow students aged 14-plus, the socially disadvantaged and seniors to travel free," he said last week.

Mr Natoli said that was "the first stage" only."
