Opening objectives

To start up a new bus service, to expand the existing DART (Doncaster Area Rapid Transit) network from four to five routes, and to complete as best as is possible, the SmartBus coverage of/around the Doncaster and Templestowe areas.

While it is most ideal to have more SmartBus routes elsewhere in Melbourne, the aim here is to complete one area, and move onto another area and complete that and so on.
