The South Gippsland Transport Users Network says it will continue to lobby the Victorian Government on a train service for the region.
The Government announced earlier this year it would not be following through on its pledge to return trains to South Gippsland, and will instead focus on bus services.
Community feedback sessions will be held next week, in Koo Wee Rup, Leongatha, Wonthaggi and Yarram.
The Transport User Network's Max Semken says it does not make sense that the Government would not consider trains as a long-term solution.
"I believe if they're not going to bring their train back they should be increasing vastly the amount of bus services into Melbourne and wherever the services will be going to, either Pakenham or Cranbourne," he said.
"I'd like to know where the money went - there was $21.5 million all up, and where did the money go for the project?"
