Western Victoria public transport

Victorian Parliament - 29 November 2017 - Ms KEALY — Access to passenger services in western Victoria are so poor that it is quicker to fly from Melbourne to Tokyo than take a bus from Horsham to Warrnambool. Barrie Firth from Horsham was amazed that it took over 10 hours for his recent bus trip to Warrnambool, a destination only 229 kilometres away by road. This highlights just how poor access to passenger services is in western Victoria, particularly when commuting between Horsham and Hamilton, and Hamilton and Warrnambool. Country Victorians deserve better access to passenger services. Under the Andrews Labor government we have seen increased services in Melbourne but cuts and longer travel times in country Victoria.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER — The member’s time has expired.
