When I heard the impassioned declaration ''myki is a f---ing disaster!'' from someone who I know hasn't taken public transport in 20 years, I had one of those breakthrough moments.

Monash University students and staff are calling enhancements to Huntingdale Station so that buses 601 and 630 can be boarded without stepping out of Huntingdale Station.
They pose that it's unsafe to have so many people crossing Huntindale Road to get to and from the existing bus stop at Huntingdale Road, as well as unsafe to wait on an empty part of Huntingdale Road for a bus as night.
They also point out that there is little in the way of shelter for bus passengers heading east along North Road.

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.
