train travellers have their say

Today was the day that the ETC targeted commuters across the Eastern suburbs to find out how they feel about public transport services.

It was a great response from commuters on the Belgrave Line very early this morning. Me and two officers from the Shire fronted on the railway platform with our trusty clipboards, armed with surveys, to find out how people feel about their train services and public transport generally.

Resoundingly a huge majority of respondents indicated that buses do not connect well with train services and it goes without saying that more services on the Belgrave and Lilydale lines were high on the list of wants.

The public transport survey was undertaken by the Eastern Transport Coalition who will use the data to inform their advocacy campaign. Surveys were taken across the Eastern suburbs with the seven ETC councils pinpointing key commuter hotspots. If you'd like to have your say by completing a survey visit http://www.etc.org.au/.
