Allan slams transport pledge

MEMBER for Bendigo East Jacinta Allan has hit out at the Napthine government's promise of free and discounted public transport in Melbourne.

Free tram travel is guaranteed within the CBD and Docklands, and zone 2 commuters will be charged a zone 1 fare regardless of who wins November’s state election.

The  government has pledged to cap maximum daily fares at the zone 1 rate across Melbourne if it wins the election.

Ms Allan said the announcement was about winning votes in Melbourne without supporting the needs of regional Victorians.

"Denis Napthine seems to have completely abandoned regional transport needs, focusing on transport in Melbourne," she said.
