Petition for better cross-town buses: Frequent Direct Electric

Poor bus services across Melbourne are forcing people into their cars, clogging up our roads with congestion and placing household budgets under strain as residents deal with the costs of maintaining two or more vehicles.

Buses should be the glue in our public transport network, connecting people to trains and trams as well as other key destinations, not meandering through our suburbs once an hour.

Melbourne urgently needs better cross town buses that are frequent, direct and electric, running 7-days a week to connect people to places that matter. This will get people out of their cars and onto sustainable transport, meaning less traffic, less pollution and more liveable communities.

Past governments have failed our city by neglecting Melbourne's buses but the Andrew's government can turn this around.

Please sign the petition to the Transport Minister today to help make this happen.

To the Victorian Minister for Public Transport, Jacinta Allan,

Melbourne's bus network is broken.

I want to see our city connected with new cross town electric buses – powered by renewable energy, manufactured in Victoria and running every 10 minutes on critically needed routes to connect Melbourne's key destinations.

This will get people out of their cars and onto sustainable transport.

Electric buses have already been deployed overseas, proving the technology is ready to go, and could easily be built right here in Victoria. This gives us an opportunity to lead the way in cleaning up our transport system and create good jobs for our economy.

Your Government has made it clear it is ready to lead on public transport by pledging to build Melbourne Metro and remove some of our worst level crossings. It is time to fix our bus system by investing in cross town electric buses.
