24 Hour transport set for trial by New Years Eve 2015

Features, Main Menu

This is likely the biggest news for Melbourne beats massive this year. It shows that our current government actually knows our city and what is needed to make it work.

Announced in the 2015-16 Victorian State Budget, Labor have pledged $50 million towards a trial of 24-hour public transport on Friday and Saturday nights. The trial will be up and running by New Year’s Eve 2015.

Overseas cities such as Berlin, New York and Chicago all have 24-hour public transport services – and now Melbourne is too.  This will be a blessing for many promoters and venues who are going broke because they can’t convince punters to pay cut-throat taxi fares.

2016 is sure looking like our year, and Daniel Andrews is doing it right.
