Melbourne's West is a great place to raise a family and around 250 babies are born here every week.
Our rapidly growing population means it's even more important that transport networks are adequate for our needs.
Traffic congestion and lack of public transport options means it takes longer to get to work and home, reducing the time we can spend with our families.
Lack of transport connections - especially buses - within our region also make it harder for families to get to shops, community services and school.
All of these issues put even more pressure on families.
