And somehow the train will be better?She is causing some rethink at V/line with statements like why we Mildura be happy with a bus when Shepparton and Bairnsdale and Albury would accept that service a very valid point. Mildura is a big city by inland standard and does need a rail service.
I think the idea of up market services running on the line why can’t rail be reimagined for Mildura lines.
Mildura may be a big city but unlike all the big cities that have rail this is almost twice the distance and has an airport that is (pre-COVID) regularly served by regional air carriers.
Again...a point always overlooked by some posters.. Mildura, similar to Albury has flights to Melbourne at regional air fares which are nowhere near as cheap V/Line fares. Unless you travel when the airlines say...which is not necessarily the time or day when YOU want to travel.
I routinely travel to Mildura by V/Line, on the day I want to and on the service that I want to and the fare is always the same...so what's your point
