The Victoria Government will upgrade major bus stops across Shepparton as part of last month’s Victorian Budget 2016/17 announcement.

Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan visited Shepparton railway station recently to discuss the improvements.

The budget funds improvements to the waiting area at the station and better shelter at major bus stops across Shepparton.

The Budget includes $280 million for 27 new VLocity carriages, $141 million for critical maintenance and $198 million to rebuild V/Line, so it can deliver better services for Shepparton and across regional Victoria.

 "We’re delivering new trains, more services and better bus infrastructure for Shepparton. The extra daily service will mean less time on platforms waiting for the train, and more time at home with family and friends," says Allan.

 "We’re planning for a growing Shepparton – investing in the services and infrastructure locals need to get to work, school and appointments, and home again safer and sooner at the end of the day."
