From our struggles and successes, to that weird dream we have where everyone in Melbourne has access to world-class public transport and can get to work on time, can access school, universities and hospitals across the city and, at the same time, help build a cleaner, sustainable city for our kids. You know you want to!

Yes, I'd like to help out!

This is powerful community campaign in Melbourne - that means it's commuters, local volunteers and community leaders that are talking to their neighbours at street stalls, train stations and bus stops about the need for world-class public transport.

We'd love you and your community to join us on the campaign train so please complete the form below.

A New Era?

tunrbull-quote.png

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.

Yours Sincerely,
