Consultation is closing soon to provide your thoughts on whether you’d benefit from a ‘Cross Peninsula’ bus service and an ‘On Demand’ bus service on the Mornington Peninsula.

Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Councillor Sam Hearn said “since the launch of Council’s Better Buses campaign in August 2019, over 70,000 people have told us how public transport plays a vital role for many on the Peninsula”.

“Public transport connects young people with education and employment. It allows our ageing population to live independently and go to medical appointments and social activities. During the Peninsula’s busiest periods, public transport benefits our visitors who are looking to explore our beautiful Peninsula.

“Your opinion on a ‘Cross Peninsula’ bus service and an ‘On Demand’ bus service can help us make travelling throughout the Peninsula better.

“We want your insights on whether services like these would benefit you, as well as where and how you would use it,” concluded Mayor Hearn.


Community consultation is currently open and closes 5pm 31 January 2019.
