Public transport is expensive, unreliable and overcrowded. Country Victorians simply cannot rely on public transport to go about their business in the next town, or travel to Melbourne conveniently. Cycling infrastructure remains a planning afterthought.
That’s why we will work hard to make your journeys more convenient, less crowded and more reliable.
We want to shift the focus from building dirty, polluting roads to the creation of more train lines, more tram track, more bus routes and more safe cycling routes that connect. This policy will benefit motorists too, as it will help unclog the roads.
You saw our strong opposition to the $18 billion East-West Toll Link and our sustained pressure for the contracts to be ripped up. And it worked.
Our seven MPs in the Victorian Parliament will work hard for a bigger, better public transport system because it will reduce pollution, increase economic efficiency and give you what you’ve been promised - reliable transport that is cost-effective and gets you where you want to go.
