This evening the Public Transport Users Association (PTUA) Southeast Branch provided the opportunity to recognise the dedication of one of the founding members of the PTUA, Ken McIntyre.
Ken was a foundation member of the organisation, who with a number of other concerned citizens formed the PTUA in 1976. Under Ken’s stewardship the organisation achieved number of victories, including the introduction of multimodal tickets, meaning that passengers do not need to pay separate fares to use buses, trams or trains and electrification of the Cranbourne line in Melbourne’s southeast.
After resigning from the PTUA committee in 1995, Ken recently returned as an active member of the PTUA Southeast Branch. Ken’s experience has proven invaluable as the branch continues to advocate for further public transport improvements in southeast.
A certificate was presented to Ken in acknowledgement of his continued years of service to the PTUA.
