Get on Track! Transport and Liveability: The Path to a Sustainable Victoria

By February 9, 2006No Comments

The Public Transport Users Association (PTUA) combined with Environment Victoria (EV), Friends of the Earth (FOE) and the Victorian Council of Social Services (VCOSS) have formed the Coalition for People’s Transport. The Coalition for People’s Transport is an alliance of community, social justice, environment, local government, disability and transport user groups and is committed to sustainable and equitable transport across Melbourne.

The launch of the Coalition for People’s Transport Get on Track! campaign occurred in Rowville amid renewed calls for the State Government to Get on Track and increase the investment into public transport.

The Coalition has released its own version of the Transport and Liveability to demand immediate public transport improvements from the State Government. This statement discusses some of the keys factors that will determine the liveability of Melbourne in the future.
