Push for improved transport in country Victoria

leave a comment »

On 14 November 2005, the State Government unveiled Moving Forward, the Bracks Government’s $502 million action plan for growth in Provincial Victoria. This initiative promised a public transport bus service to connect Whitfield with the Hume Region.

Apart from the initial press release and a report in The Chronicle, we have heard nothing more. In February, The Watchdog published a follow up article, Public Transport to the King Valley which offered some alternatives.

Now, with fuel prices climbing higher, and the RACV reporting that rural Victoria has the worst transport options in Australia for people who cannot drive, it is an opportune time for the community to start asking, “Where is our bus service?”
