July 21, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm AESTFree
The BCSV are excited to announce another guest speaker for our programme of Sunday social meetings in 2019.
Dr Chris Lowe, Executive Director of BusVic, has kindly accepted our invitation to present at July meeting on Sunday 21 July at 3pm.
BusVic is an industry body that provides various forms of support to operators across the state and advocates to government on the behalf of private operators, both small and large.
Having lead BusVic for over a decade, Dr Lowe has a thorough understanding of the bus industry in Victoria.
Chris will present BusVic’s 10-point vision for enhancements across Victoria’s bus network, as developed ahead of the 2018 state election. He will discuss the various opportunities and challenges that lie ahead along with the likely consequences of ignoring the industry’s recommendations.
He will also provide valuable industry insight into the new metropolitan bus contracts signed with the state government last year.
The afternoon will close with a chance for the audience to ask Dr Lowe questions, followed by a hot drink over afternoon tea.
Our bi-monthly Sunday social meetings are held at Hawthorn Tram Depot / Melbourne Tram Museum, 8 Wallen Rd, near the corner of Power St.
Alight Tram Routes 70 & 75 at Riversdale Junction. Alternatively, Hawthorn Station on the Belgrave/Lilydale line is a short 10 min walk away.
All welcome, free entry!
