Eastern Transport Coalition (ETC)

ERITG focusing on sustainable transport for the outer east

By April 6, 2006No Comments

The Eastern Region Integrated Transport Group (ERITG) met today to continue outlining its objectives and aims over the coming year.

Uniform bus, train and tram frequencies, a comprehensive review of bus routes, station upgrades and the assurance that there will be planning for future rail extensions is the core focus of ERITG in this key election year.

With the Government’s Transport and Liveability Statement now delayed until mid May it is crucial that the government delivers on its commitment to increase public transport modal share to 20% by 2020 through providing a comprehensive and fully costed plan.
