Better bus services and bike infrastructure for Melbourne's West (Time for the West)

A number of significant community consultations, including the recent Western Metropolitan Assembly, have demonstrated that improved transport infrastructure, particularly buses and bikes, are of great importance to people in Melbourne's West. 

By seeking improvements in these areas, LeadWest is hoping to increase transportation choices for people in the West, as well as the amount of time people have to spend on things other than commuting. 

The specific policies we are seeking are:

  • A region-wide analysis of current and future transport needs;
  • Access to safe, frequent and reliable public transport across the west;
  • Safer, easier ways to walk and cycle in the west;
  • A new, high-frequency network of bus connections between major centres;
  • Well-coordinated connections into train stations and local centres; and
  • New transport services planned and activated at the right time in growing communities.

LeadWest is supporting the 'Time For the West' campaign on this issue. 'Time for the West' represents people who live, work and study in the West.
