They have done so by putting public transport under the control of
efficient, accountable public agencies, while Melbourne is a
privatised, unaccountable, uncoordinated mess.
But Melbourne's public transport can be taken back into public
control modelled on the very best in the world, if the state government
does not extend or renew the rail and tram franchises by the 30th
November 2007. If the government so chooses by the 2007 deadline,
Melbourne's trains and trams will revert to public ownership without
the need to compensate the private operators.
