Have Your Say: Better Buses for the Mornington Peninsula

Mornington Peninsula Shire is inviting public feedback on poor provision of public transport on the Peninsula and the impact this has on people’s lives. 

The Problem

  • 82% of the Peninsula is not serviced by public transport.
  • The Shire has the second lowest provision of public transport out of the 31 councils in the Melbourne metropolitan area.
  • 2 out of 3 major activity centres on the Peninsula are not serviced by rail; the third has a diesel service on a limited timetable.

The Impact

  • The lack of public transport options impacts on the community in different ways according to their needs and stages of life (e.g. young, elderly, people with disabilities); the campaign will draw out the ways these different impacts manifest;
  • Due to the lack of public transport on the Peninsula, our residents are almost six times less likely to travel to work by public transport than Greater Melbourne;
  • A mere 3% of Shire residents take public transport to work, compared with 15% across Greater Melbourne.

 The Solution

  •  A fully integrated smart technology bus network, with specific routes and improvements identified as per Council’s position.
