Train Overcrowding

Melbourne’s trains are overcrowded and don’t run often enough. 

New figures show many of our train lines are more overcrowded than ever. Labor and the Liberals have traded blame while the problem has only been getting worse.

The Greens will prioritise investment in our signalling system to get Melbourne’s trains back on track.

I want a train system for the 21st century. I want frequent trains and less overcrowding. That’s why I support the Greens’ initiative for a once in a generation upgrade of our train signalling system.

    Time for a change to these transport issue’s, the people leaving their cars at home are getting punished for it.

    Replace the older Stainless Steel trains with double deckers – that will increase carrying capacity per train by up to 70%.

    For too long the car has been considered above all. We need transportation options NOW.
