The past week has been a blur and I haven’t had time to post here, so here’s a quick one:
On Wednesday I was on ABC Radio Melbourne, talking about train seat covers.
Are train seat cover patterns a strategic topic for public transport advocacy? Not really.
But the radio spot was arranged in advance, allowing some thinking time, so a couple of good strategic campaign messages were able to be seamlessly included, without bogging down what was basically a light-hearted discussion. So everybody wins!
Apart from Brunswick being so prominent when it has some of the least frequent trains in Melbourne, perhaps the bigger mystery is why Rockbank is on there – it’s a V/Line station, not served by Metro. (But given #MelbsWest is growing so fast, it should be!) pic.twitter.com/WziahfoUYi— Daniel Bowen (@danielbowen) August 9, 2022
Here’s the audio if you want to listen. The segment starts at 1:19:40, but some of the rest of the show has listeners ringing in with stories about trains.
