Geelong Bus Service

Highton, Waurn Ponds, Grovedale and Marshall

The Geelong bus timetable from Viclink Effective 7 September 2009 does not provide public transport along the former route 16, to all users in the above areas.

Even though this is an extensive network servicing Geelong town centre and the surrounding suburbs, it does not cover the entire area that route 16 once covered, adequately.

We the undersigned wish to draw your attention to:

the geography of the land that the route 16 bus once transported passengers over eg. hills, open land etc. that is difficult for bus users eg. citizens who are elderly or disabled, to negotiate.

the lack of bus shelters at stops in places where passengers now need to wait for connecting buses, on the former route 16, to take them to Community Centres, Education Facilities, Medical Centres, Work, etc.

excessive waiting times at above stops, for once seamless travel on our public transport service, has been replaced with a broken and stunted one which is less than ideal as well as very complicated to use.

The Bring Back Entire Bus Service on Route 16 petition to Geelong Bus Service was written by Anonymous and is in the category Roads & Transport at GoPetition.
