State Govt's Regional Rail Revival

 
  The Vinelander Minister for Railways

Location: Ballan, Victoria on the Ballarat RFR Line
Used V/line's Daylink again this week to get to Ballarat, the bus stop at Horsham VIC is still atrocious. I would have thought that a regional rail revival would include something for bus interchanges. No shelter from changing buses in the sun and the rain, buses are two-deep at times and go to several destinations, not good enough. The Horsham Council and the VIC govt need to come together and come up with something better.

Perhaps consider writing to PT Minister Horne or Infrastructure Minister Allan.

Does a proposal for a 'Regional Rail Revival' include improvements to bus stops Question

I was there with many others notwithstanding my group of 10+ on New Years day if you recall...and the shelter is small for the market offering...but as you've said many times people don't use buses preferring to drive to Ararat etc..., therefore is there any energy despite the recent service increases to improve the amenities of the bus stop.

Why not use the railway station as the bus stop?

The station, whilst a good suggestion is around three blocks away from the Horsham CAD and not a lot of space for multiple buses there either.

The coach interchange in Horsham is in a pretty good location. All that is really needed is actual bays for certain buses, e.g. having a Melbourne/Ararat bound post/bay, a Nhill/Adelaide bound bay, an all other locations bay with clearer signage for each.

There are waiting rooms inside the old police station, but these of course are away from the road.

Changes and improvements to bus stops are usually done by local councils, and while they may have good intentions they don't always fully understand what would actually make it easier to use the services.

finally some sense in this conversation.

Only thing wrong with the old police station/community centre, is the fact that the doors are often firmly locked, as Mike discovered on New Year's day.

An absolute disgrace for both PTV and the Council.
Should be open from first to last bus, and a bit of refurb and catering wouldn't go amiss.
