      Advocacy 2019  -  Event MTF Loves Buses

      A strategy workshop confirmed bus and improving bus patronage as a priority for 2019, and a bus forum MTF loves buses  was held October 2019 exploring the role and opportunities for local governments to improve bus services in their municipalities.  The 60+ attendance from local governments heard from
      • Department of Transport
      • MTCagney Consulting (on Brisbane busways)
      • Infrastructure Victoria (immediate actions to tackle congestion)
      • Professor Graham Currie (what councils can do to improve buses)

      Advocacy 2018  -  MTF transport forums
      The pre-election Council-based transport forums have become a regular event for the MTF, and have been organised in the lead-up to the 2010, 2014 and now 2018 state elections to enable the community to debate local transport issues with election candidates. In 2018 14 forums were held by member councils in metropolitan Melbourne.  They were organised by Greg Day, Edunity, and all proceedings can be found at www.transportforum.org.au.

      Advocacy 2017  -  MTF event Bus Matters

      As a lead event for the MTF bus advocacy program for 2017/2018 the MTF hosted a forum on Tuesday 31st October 2017 focussing on what can be done to help buses play a greater role in the local transport mix.  An interesting line up of speakers provided valuable insight into the bus sector as follows:

      • Professor Graham Currie, Monash University,
      • Dr Chris Lowe, Bus Association of Victoria
      • Rene Lalabande, Transdev (international transport operator managing a large sector of Melbourne's buses)
      • Dr Elliot Fishman, Institute of Sensible Transport  
      • David Silvester, Chris Loader, Transport for Victoria

      A workshop organised by Phillip Boyle and Associates (PBA) followed in the afternoon working through the many issues to do with buses and concentrating into some common themes of importance to all member councils.  These will be carried on for future advocacy.  

      In 2018 bus advocacy has been maintained as an underfunded and much needed element of the public transport system, which despite a number of major rail projects, is still the only public transport option for much of Melbourne.  See www.billions4buses.melbourne for ongoing bus advocacy.
