A commuter group says that City Loop is a "confusing mess" and is calling for a review of train routes that pass through underground tunnels. Public Transport Users Association says train passengers are left stranded by a Loop that runs to different patterns and directions on weekdays and weekends, depending on the time.
It has prompted the PTUA to create its own diagrams of how trains run around the City Loop uploaded to ptua.org.au today.
PTUA president Daniel Bowen said loop routes had "far too many variations". "The Loop is actually four separate rail tunnels, with trains running one way during the morning, most reversing direction during the afternoon and yet another pattern on weekends." Bowen said.
He said the Altona Loop stations on the Werribee line was (sic) even more confusing, running in three different patterns. Bowen said commuters were often left stranded at Parliament, Flagstaff and Melbourne Central from about 12:30pm to 1pm on weekdays.
He said commuters could not travel from the underground stations to Flinders St or Southern Cross on weekday afternoons, making it hard to connect to V/Line and Sky Bus services.
