I came across a booklet in the City Library published by the PTUA in 1991. Greening Melbourne with Public Transport is the title. It is quite sad to read of so many proposals and so little achieved. OK, we have a tram from Mont Albert to Box Hill. But that would seem to be best achievement (make allowances for me not researching facts).
Someone had a dream of how public transport would function in Melbourne in 2005 and put their thoughts in the booklet. Very disappointing reading.
Even thought I am a committed communist, I would vote for Doyle if he came up with a wonderful vision for public transport. Extensions of lines, improvements to service frequencies, a simpler fare system, a serious attempt to alleviate congestion affecting trams and buses.
Why can't a politician have a vision of a big city well served by public transport. It will cost initially, but the rewards, financial and other will be reaped later.
