Homesafe: Labor’s plan for 24-hour public transport
A Victorian Labor Government will deliver 24-hour public transport across Melbourne with trains, trams and buses running all weekend, every weekend.
Starting on New Year’s Eve 2015 Victoria will begin a twelve month trial of 24-hour weekend public transport. Trains will run throughout the night to Berwick, Hallam and Narre Warren Railway Stations.
Following the trial, Victorian Labor will review demand and structure the system accordingly. If passengers vote with their feet, 24-hour weekend public transport will be continued and expanded as needed.
Trains will be running on all lines, while selected buses and trams will also assist people in getting safely out of the city to their homes in the suburbs and the country.
This will ensure that getting home will now be that much easier, safer and cheaper for local residents.
