Connex Moving More People in Long Haul

Melbourne public transport company Connex is hoping to keep building public support as the network of trains and lines grows in the future. A TV ad compares and contrasts the high tech service offered by Connex with a neighbourhood tractor and trailer operation.

Imagine if you had to move a city, take nurses to hospitals, school kids to schools, futures analysts to well, wherever it is futures analysts go. Imagine getting all these people, hundreds of thousands of them to where they needed to be. That’s what Connex does every day. It’s a big job and as Melbourne grows it’s getting bigger. Which is why we’re making changes to the network, adding more carriages, more staff and more services. You can see our new plan at Connex – we’re moving more people every day.
