To further its advocacy for public transport improvements, the ETC has produced a series of factsheets highlighting its priorities for the region:

Linking the CBD, Monash University and Stud Park, rail to Rowville has long been acknowledged as the missing link of Melbourne’s train network and now is the time to commit to its expansion and provide for the removal of 2400 cars an hour off local roads.

The Rowville rail line would also service Monash University which has over 23,000 students and a scientific precinct that includes Australia’ first synchrotron.

The City of Monash alone accounts for 6% of all metropolitan jobs within Melbourne, with the majority of employees living in neighbouring municipalities such as Knox.
