It doesn't help that stations still only have one exit and people are directed to and from these points like sheep. Blackburn station during peak is ridiculous; whenever a packed train stops there, roughly two Myki readers are used out of the ten or more that are on the the three platforms (no-one ever thinks to walk through the platform 1+2 exit and touch off on platform 3 where both the car park and a few buses are located).
Lilydale: 6th car (the down end exit is still closed from public use)
Mooroolbark: 3rd or 4th car
Croydon: 3rd or 4th car
Ringwood East: 2nd car (up); 5th car (down)
Ringwood: 2nd or 4th car (platform 1, because it lacks an exit near the ramp, and there is a useless Red Engine kiosk wasting space on the up end of the waiting area, which also lacks access to platform 1); 3rd car (up, platform 2); 4th car (down, both platforms 2 and 3)
Heatherdale: 6th car (up); 1st car (down)
Mitcham: 5th car (up); 2nd car (down); either way, it takes forever to exit due to the station design, and lack of direct access to Mitcham Rd despite the ramps going right up to the footpath on the side of the road.
Nunawading: 6th car (up); 1st car (down)
Blackburn: 3rd or 4th car
Laburnum: 3rd or 4th car
Box Hill: 3rd or 4th car (near escalators); 2nd car (up, lift access); 5th car (down, lift access); needless to say, wheelchairs on down services are "conveniently" placed a country mile from the one and only exit point (the lift). This station, and the oh-so-not-DDA-compliant bus interchange, needs to be completely ripped out of the shopping centre and started again from scratch. Time to bulldoze the eyesore of derelict-looking shops between Box Hill Central and Whitehorse Rd (as they did with Eastland) and turn this into the bus interchange. Not the Whitehorse Plaza side where Coles is located, but the eastern-most block where the banks are all lined up in a row (with a TAB conveniently placed on the corner next to the street of ATMs, of which at least one Commonwealth ATM allows you to withdraw $50 and $100 notes rather than the regular $20 and $50, if the printed sheet of A4 paper on the side is to be believed).
