2 Reflecting on why PTV is here…
The Honourable Terry Mulder, Minister for Public Transport Transport Legislation Amendment (Public Transport Development Authority) Bill 2011 “…As the stress and strains on the public transport system worsened, nobody seemed to be in charge, nobody wanted to accept responsibility, nobody was prepared to be accountable. It was always somebody else’s fault…” “…The Public Transport Development Authority will be a customer-friendly organisation. Importantly, the authority will have a strong focus on the right of every Victorian to a safe and secure public transport network…” Heyington Station incident – 22 February CCTV footage of “train surfing” – 31 January Source: Channel 9, 24 February 2014
