Better Buses Petition: Minister Ben Carroll, we want better buses!

 

Are you sick of poor bus connections, long waits and poorly planned bus routes? Frustrated at a lack of bus services in your local area?

The transport sector is the second largest and fastest growing source of emissions in Victoria. But right now, the road lobby is still pushing the government to invest in more toxic mega roads, over much needed sustainable public transport like buses - particularly in Melbourne's West.

Communities across the state are calling for frequent, connected and electric buses to reduce emissions, create local jobs and connect our communities.

Will Victorian Minister for Public Transport Ben Carroll listen to the community and commit to better buses, or continue to cause climate damage by building more mega roads?

SIGN THE PETITION: Call on Victorian Minister Ben Carroll to commit to Better Buses!

The Hon. Minister Ben Carroll,

The transport sector is the second largest and fastest growing source of emissions in Victoria. But right now, we are still seeing more roads being built over much needed sustainable public transport like buses - particularly in Melbourne's West.

Communities across the state are calling for frequent, connected and electric buses to decarbonise our transport sector.

We commend the Victorian governments' work on transitioning to renewable powered trams and trains, and plans for large scale train networks to connect our communities.

Now it's time for the state government to show the same level of commitment for buses. 

Minister Carroll, I call on you to commit to Better Buses through 10 minute frequency and 100% electric buses in Melbourne's West, and upgrade the top 25 worst bus connections across the state by 2025.

This outcome would be a significant step towards reducing emissions in the transport sector and achieving the Victorian Renewable Energy Target, as well as ensuring better bus services.
