It’s time for politicians to listen and fix public transport in Melton
For too long, the residents of the City of Melton have been neglected.
Our public transport is woefully inadequate. Many people live more than a 10 minute walk from a bus stop, and those who are lucky enough to live near a bus stop have a bus service that runs infrequently and connects poorly to other public transport services.
This has to change. Ahead of the 2018 Victorian election we are asking politicians to fix transport in the City of Melton:
- 95% of residents in the City of Melton should live within 400 metres of a public transport service that runs at least every 20 minutes, 7 days a week
- Bus routes should be extended to service new residential estates
- Bus routes should be established to link the City of Melton to the surrounding region e.g. Bacchus Marsh, Watergardens, and Werribee
- Every train should be met by a bus.
The duplication of the rail tracks to Melton Township, and the commencement of additional train services to Melton in late 2019, provides a perfect opportunity for the State Government to review the bus services to the railway stations at Caroline Springs, Rockbank, Cobblebank (Ferris Road), and Melton to improve access to these stations.
We deserve a level of public transport that many people in Melbourne take for granted.
Sign the petition to tell our politicians to step up and fix transport in the City of Melton. By filling out your details on this form, you’re part of thousands of local voices demanding action, now.
