Public Transport Update

29 Mar 2017

Council is actively working with bus operator, Transdev, and Public Transport Victoria to investigate the feasibility of upgrading bus services in Manningham to a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) standard. BRT is a bus based public transport system designed to improve capacity and reliability through more frequent priority services.

A project scope and implementation schedule is being developed, suitable route options are being identified and funding opportunities investigated.

Council’s Integrated Transport Advisory Committee (ITAC) also meets on a regular basis to focus on transport advocacy at a broader scale, and to promote behaviour change to encourage greater uptake of sustainable transport by the community.
