major gaps in transport links

One does not have to be a genius to see that Creswick bus timetables and Melbourne trains fail to intersect by fractions. The 11.11 am bus from Creswick arrives 8 minutes after the train has departed for Melbourne. On return trips, say, the 11.17am from Southern Cross arrives at Ballarat 11 minutes after the Creswick bus has left, with a 2.5 hour wait for the next. My trips to Melbourne and back mean expensive taxis to complete the trip. I confronted the CEO of Public Transport Victoria over this on ABC radio but he left over the wheel-wearing issue. Hopefully the community consultations will result in a timetable that actually does work and brings Creswick properly into the transport network. It cannot be that hard to achieve.
