It is hard to believe that the public servants in charge of Melbourne’s transport system are allowed to run free to ruin our lives.
Since The Intergenerational Report has been released by our government we have been informed that our population is aging.
This is an important report because it will help provide for the needs of a changing demographic.
One assumes, therefore, that the Victorian government is going to encourage the use of public transport which will inevitably be more in demand as the population ages.
So what have the brightsparks announced to ease the overcrowding on our trains and trams?
Those who run “the world’s most livable city” are going to remove seats from our trains and trams so that there will be more standing room. In other words, the result will be “cattle trucks”.
How that should prepare the city for an aging population who already find it hard enough to locate an empty seat in one of those contraptions is a mystery to me.
