Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Public Transport (Metropolitan), David Davis:


“Commuters deserve punctual and reliable trains and under Daniel Andrews they are not getting this.


“Labor’s rail fail is meaning Victorian commuters are being left at the station, getting home later and spending more times on the already crowded trains.


“Labor just can’t manage public transport or get trains running on time.


“Daniel Andrews’ answer is to cynically change timetables to blow out trip times by up to five minutes.”
