In Victoria, 1.1 million people have either a physical or non-physical disability. Our ageing population and those with other mobility barriers also need accessibility support on the transport network.
We’re developing a Transport Accessibility Strategy to improve accessibility for everyone across the transport network.
In developing the strategy, we’ve taken a user-centred approach, drawing on the experiences and views of a wide range of people with disability from across Victoria.
We’re also taking a whole-of-system view to identify opportunities to improve the experiences of people with disability.
The Strategy will help us set priorities for addressing issues across all elements of the transport system, including public transport, roads, parking, bike lanes and shared paths.
The strategy is expected to be completed by 2023.
