MORE bus services, better timetabling and a train line extension.
They’re just some of the advocacy projects being pushed by ALP candidate for Bass, Jordan Crugnale.
The Labor candidate says more buses in the shire need to link with VLine, and services to the city and other metropolitan areas.
“I want to see a faster upgrade to the bus shelters including more destination shelters that allow people to integrate their use of cycling and public transport,” she said last week.
Ms Crugnale said it used to take around four hours travelling from Inverloch to Melbourne for work, one-way.
“I look at the services available on the Gippsland line and see the benefits that rail can bring to a regional area.
“I am advocating for a rail extension to Lang Lang as a first step with the provision of adequate facilities to allow people to park and ride to the city,” she said.
The candidate’s also pushing for a universal ticketing program, by extending Myki out to regional areas.
Ms Crugnale said she’s met with Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan to discuss the need for public transport improvements.
