WYNDHAM City Council is pushing for a shuttle train service between Werribee and Geelong, to cover the gap created by the Regional Rail Link.
The direct connection between the two cities will be lost when the RRL is introduced on June 21, forcing users to take a slower train-bus trip or drive a car.
A double-deck bus will shuttle passengers between Werribee Station and the two new stations at Wyndham Vale and Tarneit.
Wyndham City’s transport spokesman, Cr Glenn Goodfellow, said the council was disappointed with the loss of direct services to Geelong, with more than 20 services a day in each direction.
“Council strongly recommends a shuttle train service between Geelong and Werribee as a measure until the extension of the Werribee line to Wyndham Vale occurs,” he said.
“We believe this service could be offered continued without significant cost; relative to the overall cost of RRL.”
