Ballarat-Rokewood Bus Service
Mr HOWARD (Ballarat East) — A constituent from Napoleons has advised me that there are rumours that the bus service which travels twice weekly between Rokewood and Ballarat is about to be axed. This service departs from Rokewood and travels to Ballarat and Wendouree via Dereel, Enfield, Napoleons and Ross Creek on Tuesdays and Thursdays. During school holidays services also run on Wednesdays and Fridays. My constituent, Mr Clem Barnett, advises that he regularly uses the service. In his words, ‘Great people use the service and it provides a wonderful lifeline for regional people along the route’. If the Minister for Public Transport is considering discontinuing the service, I strongly urge him to think again and to recognise the value this service provides to the many people who currently rely upon it.
