Help improve bus transport in Bayside and beyond
Share your views on buses in Bus Awareness Week
Join our campaign for Better Buses in Bayside by sharing your views.
The Metropolitan Transport Forum’s Better Bus Survey is now open to celebrate Bus Awareness Week (23-27 October).
Buses are a vital part of our transport network, providing the only public transport options for over 60% of Melbournians. Bayside bus services however, are indirect, infrequent, and not well connected with rail services, particularly in Black Rock and Beaumaris.
The lack of frequent and convenient services increases reliance on private car transport. Transport in Bayside is the second largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for 16% of the communities total emissions.
While the Victorian Government is reducing emissions through the introduction of a Zero Emissions Bus fleet, Council is advocating for better and more efficient bus services in Bayside. We want to understand how you currently utilise bus services, and to share your ideas on how buses could work better for you.
The Better Bus Survey is hosted by the Metropolitan Transport Forum, helping councils to advocate for better bus services based on your feedback.
Responses are confidential. The survey closes on Sunday, 12 November 2023.
