DRC is working with a newly formed coalition of Victorian organisations and individuals who have come together to campaign for a Public Transport system that is accessible to everyone, everywhere, across our state.

As we emerge from the impacts of COVID-19 it is imperative that all members of the community can reconnect with family, friends and community. The need for reliable, safe, affordable, integrated and accessible public transport has never been greater.

Yet right now much of our transport system cannot be used by so many in our community – people with disabilities, those who need a seat, families pushing prams and many of our elders.

If you believe public transport should be for everyone please stand with us!

Victorians with disabilities have been asking for accessible public transport for over 40 years. Most of our state’s public transport system is still inaccessible.
