QVM Says No To Tourist Bus

QVM management and Council have advised us that a dedicated QVM shuttle bus is not a priority at this time as we are already a stop on the official Melbourne Tourist Shuttle.

Consideration of a dedicated shuttle came out of discussions with management on how we could renew the flow of tourist buses to QVM. Buses don’t just turn up any more. They are now part of an organised wholesale tourist business that relies on fees and in some cases a percentage of retail sales. When it became clear that QVM were having difficulty integrating with the outside tourist bus network we asked if we should perhaps consider our own bus which could be used to pick up city tourists and indeed any other group interested in coming to the market.
