Parramatta. Question over LOOP service

Parramatta City Council will review the operation of its free LOOP bus service around the CBD at the end of the current contract with the view to continuing it only if substantial sponsorship or NSW government support can be obtained through grants of an infrastructure rate change. Council notes in its June quarterly review that while the LOOP continues to meet expectations, the service could not secure much needed advertising and sponsorship support, leaving an unfavourable variance of $88,000 for the quarter.
