Please find below the wording of the petition.

“This Petition of the Residents of the Mornington Peninsula, draws to the attention of the House the legacy of under-investment in our public transport services and request a complete service review to identify, fund and resolve shortfalls to enable public transport on the Mornington Peninsula to align with PTV’s minimum service level, including but not limited to:

  1. Bus route changes to ensure all business, commercial, educational and all residential areas are properly serviced with the timetable they need, and in particular —
    (a) Bringing the bus route 788 (Frankston to Portsea) to a 20 minute timetable;
    (b) Extending the bus route 783 (Frankston to Hastings) service; and
    (c) Reconfiguring the Mornington North Bus Services.
  2. Finding and investing the $6 million allocated in the 2014 Budget for Mornington Peninsula bus infrastructure, which has never been seen;
  3. Providing a direct bus access to Frankston Hospital from all points around the Mornington Peninsula;
  4. Providing a cross-peninsula service from Hastings to Rosebud, and another from Hastings to Mornington;
  5. Providing bus services to our key tourism destinations with intra-peninsula shuttles in peak season;
  6. Provision of express commuter services of major bus routes directly to Frankston station and Monash University Peninsula Campus; and
  7. Updating all bus route signage to reflect current standards across all bus routes.”
