The Victorian Government is promising improvements to the Shepparton train station and bus stops in the state's north-east as part of a wider plan to improve the network.
Transport Minister Jacinta Allan said the city's extra daily service, announced in the recent state budget,would start in January next year when changes to the regional timetable were made.
She said she could appreciate that communities along Shepparton and Albury lines wanted more to be done.
Ms Allan said the soon to be released Regional Network Development Plan would deliver answers for frustrated V/Line customers and include a medium to longer term plan for the Shepparton and Albury lines.
"In the short-term we've been able to provide funding in the recent state budget to undertake the refurbishment of the rolling stock to help improve reliability and also make them a more comfortable train for passengers but we know that there's more to do and we need to do that as part of the release of the forthcoming Regional Network Development Plan," she said.
"Of course that includes work that needs to be done into Shepparton and the north-east and these are areas that need support from their public transport services, we know that there's more planning work that need to be done, looking at the infrastructure upgrades that need to be undertaken and the Regional Network Development Plan will go to these issues."
