The Victorian Government has invested a record amount in public transport to create jobs and get people home quickly, comfortably and reliably, every day.
This Budget builds on major investments this Government has already made in public transport infrastructure, including the Metro Tunnel and removing 50 of our most dangerous level crossings.
Victoria’s population is growing faster than any other state. In the last Budget, we invested $12.8 billion to build the transport infrastructure our state relies on, and this Budget will further grow that investment.
Our regional communities will benefit from a $1.1 billion investment in safe, reliable services that local passengers deserve.
The Victorian Budget 2017/18 also invests more than $879.5 million in a more frequent and reliable metropolitan public transport system. We are giving Victorians real transport options to get home safer and sooner, wherever they live.
