Speaking at the Australian Rail Summit in Sydney, Mr Watkins has drawn attention to what he calls a bias in the current tax system towards private car users. The Minister has told the forum that people who salary package their cars and drive them to work attract tax exemptions which are not available to public transport users. Mr Watkins says the tax exemption should be extended to people who buy public transport tickets
