What can be done to help buses play a greater role in the local transport mix?

As a lead event for the MTF bus advocacy program for 2017/2018 the MTF hosted a forum on Tuesday 31st October focussing on what can be done to help buses play a greater role in the local transport mix.  An interesting line up of speakers provided valuable insight into the bus sector as follows:

  • Professor Graham Currie, Monash University,
  • Dr Chris Lowe, Bus Association of Victoria
  • Rene Lalabande, Transdev (international transport operator managing a large sector of Melbourne's buses)
  • Dr Elliot Fishman, Institute of Sensible Transport  
  • David Silvester, Chris Loader, Transport for Victoria

A workshop organised by Phillip Boyle and Associates (PBA) followed in the afternoon working through the many issues to do with buses and concentrating into some common themes of importance to all member councils.  These will be carried on for future advocacy.
