Bendigo trains perfect record of failure

21 January 2020


Bendigo trains did not meet their on time targets once last year. 

New data from Public Transport Victoria shows that under Labor, the Bendigo service recorded a perfect fail, with trains failing to meet the 92 per cent punctuality target every month for the past 12 months. A train is late when it arrives more than six minutes after its scheduled time.

Labor slashed $149 million from VLine’s operating budget this year, investing just four per cent of the state’s public transport spending in regional projects. 

The work currently taking place to try to improve the Bendigo line has been funded entirely by the Federal Government. 

Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Regional Public Transport Steph Ryan

It’s little wonder Bendigo commuters continue to suffer from delayed services when Daniel Andrews is cutting funding to VLine.  

Labor is arrogantly taking regional communities for granted. 

While Daniel Andrews pours billions of dollars into city projects, the rest of us are being left behind.

Together we can make a difference
