PUBLIC transport in Victoria has been dragged down by years of poor management and planning, and needs an annual injection of $3 billion if it is to cope with growing demand, according to a report by state Auditor-General Des Pearson.
The report, tabled in State Parliament yesterday, found that public satisfaction with trains, trams and buses has declined in the past decade, and that all modes of public transport have regularly failed to meet government performance standards. The worst decline in satisfaction was for Melbourne's trains, the report found.
