Kealy – Time to get Western Victoria moving
The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy MP is leading the push to improve regional public transport services in Western Victoria and get our region moving again.
“Access and connectivity of public transport services is a real problem right across Western Victorian,” Ms Kealy said.
“Improved public transport is vital to reversing our region’s population decline and support decentralisation initiatives. It will help local people to get to work, school, shops, medical appointments and much more,” she said.
ABS Census data has shown that only 0.6% of people across the Lowan electorate currently use public transport to get to work.
“This statistic is not surprising given the lack of public transport options currently available,” Ms Kealy said.
“Western Victoria can get moving again with better access to public transport. I’m asking local people to help get our voice heard in Parliament and share their views about how better public transport services would improve their lives in our great part of the State.
“Together we can deliver a strong message that the 110,000 people who live in Western Victoria deserve and want better train and bus links.

Together we can make a difference
