    • Animal Welfare Reform in Victoria
      Animal Welfare Reform in Victoria

      Animal welfare matters. It's important to animals and it's important to the Victorian community, government, our animal industries and economy, which is why a holistic approach is so important.

      Community expectations of animal welfare standards have increased in recent years. Whether the focus is on pets, animals bred to produce food, those used in sport and entertainment, or wildlife – Victorians are increasingly aware of the need to be proactive about animal welfare.

      Victorians care for the welfare of our animals, but with your help we can always do better.

      To achieve this, we want you to participate - we care about your opinion. Get involved, share your ideas and find out more about the plans to be proactive about animal welfare.

    • 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.
