We can’t do it on our own…

Public transport is crucial to the growth and wellbeing of communities. The Eastern Transport Coalition (ETC) strives to give commuters in Melbourne’s east access to good connections, quality interchanges, and frequent and reliable services.

Commuters Count is an ETC campaign aiming to increase funding for, and accelerate the delivery of 50 significant public transport projects in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. We are asking for the basics: transport that improves our society and reduces our impact on the environment.

The initiatives we promote are crucial to the eastern region’s growing business opportunities, thriving job market, clean air and liveable communities. Through the Eastern Transport Coalition you can be part of our movement to expand and improve public transportation in Melbourne’s east by spreading our message:

Residents in Melbourne’s east deserve access to a convenient, affordable, reliable and safe public transportation system.
