Mr Hibbins to ask the Minister for Public Transport — With reference to proposed rail service increases for Hawksburn and Toorak Stations:

(1)    What are the details of the service increases.

(2)    When will increases come into effect.

(3)    Will the Minister monitor patronage at Hawksburn and Toorak Stations to ensure service levels are adequate.

ANSWER:

I am informed that, as at the date the question was raised:

The Andrews Labor Government is committed to delivering a world class public transport system for Melbourne. To drive this commitment we are building the Melbourne Metro, removing fifty of the most dangerous level crossings and purchasing rolling stock.

(1-2) 
Public Transport Victoria (PTV) is planning to introduce new metropolitan rail services at the end of 2015, including services on the Frankston line. PTV will release full details of the timetable changes closer to implementation.

(3)    PTV monitors the level of crowding on metropolitan train services through passenger count surveys (known as Load Standard Surveys). The results of surveys are used in determining how Melbourne's train system needs to evolve to meet the needs of passengers.
