Transit City (Melbourne 2030)

Ringwood has been designated to be a Transit City as part of the Melbourne 2030 development plan by the Bracks government. Ringwood is a key gateway from Melbourne's CBD to the Yarra Valley.

Unfortunately, in April 2008, the Brumby Labour Government did not approve any of the plans for the construction of the new transport hub in the centre of Ringwood. The development of the aging Railway Station and facilities would provide improvements to several elements of the environs and to passenger safety.

Transportation

As part of the Melbourne 2030 planning policy Ringwood became a designated 'Transit City' as a push to locate higher-density development near public transport facilities. The designation of Ringwood as a Transit City prompted community concerns over a lack of community consultation leading rise to the creation of the Ringwood Transit City Community Coalition (RTCCC).

Ringwood has a railway station that is an interchange for the Belgrave and Lilydale lines.
