Rachel PAYNE (South-Eastern Metropolitan) (12:58): (724)

My constituency question is for the Minister for Public and Active Transport. My constituent is a resident of Beaconsfield. Like many in our community, my constituent travels to and from work on public transport, relying on the 838 bus service on their way home.

Unfortunately this bus route operates with low frequency, so if my constituent misses the bus they are forced to wait for at least 2 hours for the next one or find an alternate way home. My constituent also astutely notes that there have been no new public bus services in the area since 2014, despite the increased needs of the growing local community.

So my constituent asks: will the minister consider arranging for the service 838 to operate with increased frequency and consider further expansions to other local services?

[Answer Pending]
