Cross peninsula bus services survey

Share

RESIDENTS have only a few days left to provide input on whether they’d benefit from a Cross Peninsula bus service and an on-demand bus service on the Mornington Peninsula.

“Since the launch of the council’s Better Buses campaign in August, about 70,000 people have told us how public transport plays a vital role for many on the peninsula,” the mayor Cr Sam Hearn said.

“Public transport connects young people with education and employment. It allows our ageing population to live independently and go to medical appointments and social activities. During the peninsula’s busiest periods, public transport benefits visitors who are looking to explore our beautiful peninsula.

“Your opinion on a cross peninsula bus service and an on-demand bus service can help us make travelling throughout the peninsula better.”

The shire wants to hear about where passengers would want buses to run.

Community consultation closes 5pm, Friday 31 January.

To provide online feedback visit: mornpen.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay.

Forms are available in hard copy at the shire’s offices at Rosebud, Mornington, Hastings and Somerville.

Email submissions to: haveyoursay@mornpen.vic.gov.au with the subject line ‘Cross Peninsula and On Demand bus services’.
