Victorian Bus Plan released
JUST RELEASED: Victoria’s Bus Plan sets out how the State Government will start to deliver a modern, productive, environmentally sustainable bus network that increases the number of people choosing to take the bus by delivering simple, safe, reliable and comfortable journeys.
The plan doesn’t just focus on bus network changes, it prioritises the system as a whole, bringing together opportunities across the networks, bus fleet, performance, commercial, innovation and customer experience.
It includes actions the Government is already delivering and the reform objectives that, together with industry will provide a bus system that is more attractive and useful for all Victorians, ensuring our buses play a stronger role in a transport network critical to growing a more prosperous, more liveable and more connected Victoria.
Buses carry 50% of the passenger on the train newwork, while 34% of bus trips also involve a tram or train. A key feature of the plan is integration with the Big Build projects.
