No joy in free public transport announcement for Lowan residents

The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy has reminded the Andrews Labor Government that not all Victorians will be able to enjoy the benefit of free public transport travel on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve.

“While the announcement is great news for Melbournians and those living in other major regional centres, many country Victorians do not have access to public transport to be able to take advantage of this opportunity,” Ms Kealy said.

“The return of passenger rail services to Horsham and Hamilton was a major commitment made by The Nationals during the election campaign and was emphatically supported by Lowan voters.

“Lowan residents would like nothing better for Christmas than an announcement that passenger rail will return to Horsham and Hamilton.

“I am calling on the Andrews Labor Government to do what they said they would do and govern for all Victorians.

“I will continue to fight every day to ensure country Victorians get the services, infrastructure and investment we need and deserve,” she said.
