Minister for Public Transport Questioned on Bus Services for Students in Scoresby

Mr WELLS (Rowville) The question I wish to raise is for the Minister for Public Transport. Minister, can you explain to Knox families when there will be a bus service for students living near Kelletts Road, Rowville, to nearby Scoresby Secondary College?

I have been contacted by a family from Rowville which is very concerned that there is no bus route along Kelletts Road which travels directly north along Stud Road past Scoresby Secondary College.

The closest bus service, route 682, travels south via Stud Road shopping centre, and the Telebus service also requires a further connection at Stud Park. Although their school is only 6 kilometres from home, my constituents find bus services are neither well-connected nor frequent enough for travelling by bus to be a practical transport option.
