It’s Time To Move — free book download

The PTUA book “It’s Time To Move” is now available for free download. Originally published in 2002, the book forms the basis of the PTUA’s policies, and explains what needs to be done to make Melbourne and Victoria’s public transport world-class, to reduce car dependency, improve economic efficiency, help the natural environment, and make our state more liveable.

Train users: Claim your compensation

Train users who used a Monthly or longer ticket in February have until April 30th to claim compensation (a Daily ticket) from Connex for poor performance.

While the PTUA views the current compensation arrangements as inadequate, we do encourage eligible users to claim. A daily ticket may not be much compensation from continual disruptions on the train system, but it helps send the message to Connex and the government that train performance needs to be fixed.

Download the form from the Connex web site. (Includes details on what to do if you have already thrown away your ticket from February, or it was a Yearly which is still in use.)
