Living in inner city Sydney, Malcolm Turnbull enjoys the benefits of frequent and reliable public transport, so much so he finds it impractical to drive. In contrast most Australians don't have access to any decent public transport services and as a result have to face the congested roads day in day out.
Mr Turnbull knows that only an efficient public transport system will get our cities moving and so has a responsibility to all Victorians to immediately fund public transport.
Take a stand for our future. Sign the petition today.
Dear Prime Minister Turnbull,
The Federal Government’s refusal to fund public transport is preventing state governments from delivering vital infrastructure posing a very real threat to our economy and environment.
Traffic congestion already costs Australian cities $15billion a year.
Without serious investment in public transport 5 million extra cars will be clogging up Melbourne’s roads by 2036.
As has been proven overseas, only an effective mass transit system can cope with the travel needs of our growing population.
We shouldn't be forced to sell off public assets in order to build crucial new transport infrastructure.
Mr Turnbull, please commit to funding public transport infrastructure.
