Public Transport Advocacy - Share Your Story

Council is seeking engagement and personal stories from the community to highlight the need for improved public transport in our region. In the recent 'Hamilton Moves' project engagement, better public transport connections was a frequent suggestion.

Regional bus services from Hamilton to key regional centres such as Ballarat, Mt Gambier and Warrnambool are of particular concern. We know access to Ballarat is critical for residents to effectively access employment, social connectedness, and essential medical appointments. We know access to Warrnambool is critical for hundreds of South West TAFE students who rely on being in Warrnambool for workshop/technical training. Currently there is no service that allows residents to complete a days work or study with return to the region in the same day. Warrnambool and Ballarat are key locations for medical services not available in Hamilton along with other support services. Public transport access into Coleraine is also severely limited and would be addressed with an improved coach service.

Ahead of the upcoming State election, we're calling on a commitment to improved public transport for our region and we need your help.

We want to hear from you. Tell us the challenges you have faced because of the lack of adequate public transport in Southern Grampians Shire.
