Regional Network Development Plan


The Victorian Government has launched the Regional Network Development Plan - the first-ever long term plan to improve public transport in regional Victoria.

Regional Victorians will get more trains, better bus services, new connections and upgraded stations to get where they need to go quickly, reliably and safely.

The Regional Network Development Plan guides the short, medium and long term priorities needed to modernise the network with more track, more train, better facilities and more services.
The plan sets out three strategic, network-wide priorities for regional public transport:
• Building a better public transport network
• Putting passengers first
• Developing local transport solutions

The Regional Network Development Plan has been developed following one of the most extensive public consultation processes ever undertaken in regional Victoria.

For the first time, regional communities were consulted on the current and future public transport needs of their region, with people sharing their ideas through several channels including:
• More than 1400 people attended 38 workshops across the state
• 1700 surveys completed
• 670 comments posted in online discussion forums
• 100 submissions

The Conversation Summaries for each region also highlighted what was most important to regional Victorians using public transport.

The workshops and online forums to inform the development of this plan may have ended – but the conversations will continue.
Following the launch of the plan in each region, the Victorian Government will be holding information sessions in local communities. Details on these sessions will be provided in the coming weeks.

You can also share your ideas and feedback on transport planning in your area anytime by emailing us.
