93.9 BayFM Geelong
The fines, for late services between July last year and March this year, have prompted the rail authority to call on the state government to do something meaningful on the local line rather than just hand out financial penalties.
V-Line has told the Geelong Advertiser the penalty system is an “outdated concept” that fails to hold anyone responsible.
It says up to 90 per cent of faults that cause delays are not V/Line’s fault.
