    • Bus Your Bike Trial
      Bus Your Bike Trial

      Victoria is conducting its first trial of bike racks on buses, servicing four metropolitan and regional bus routes.
      The one year trial will see bike racks fitted to the front of 15 buses operating on Bendigo Route 16, Routes 510 and 512 in Moreland, and the Cowes to Wonthaggi service.

      The bike racks, each capable of carrying two bikes, will enable passengers to ride to their local bus stop and then catch public transport to continue their journey.

      The trial is also aimed at alleviating congestion on local roads and providing an environmentally friendly transport option for Victorians.

      Riders using the bike racks simply secure their bike using the spring-loaded clamps, before boarding the bus and paying the standard fare.

      At the end of the trial a full assessment of the impact on service including patronage, performance and customer satisfaction will be carried out.

    • Community Consultation on IBAC, the Victorian Ombudsman and the Auditor-General
      Community Consultation on IBAC, the Victorian Ombudsman and the Auditor-General

      The Victorian Government is committed to ensuring a robust integrity and accountability system for Victoria. Victorians are entitled to expect that the public sector will act with integrity and be accountable for its decisions. While the primary responsibility to act with integrity lies with public bodies and officers, Victoria's integrity and accountability bodies, including the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC), the Victorian Ombudsman and the Auditor-General, play a critical role by providing avenues for complaint and independent oversight of the public sector.

      The Victorian Government wants to hear your views on key issues about the role and operation of these bodies as part of its extensive review of the integrity and accountability system. The Government has developed discussion papers inviting input on:

      * IBAC's public examinations and IBAC's role in preventing corruption in the public sector
      * the Victorian Ombudsman's continuing role in the Victorian integrity and accountability system, and
      * the role of the modern Auditor-General in the Victorian integrity and accountability system
