This report has been produced by the Victorian Council of Social Service (VCOSS) to examine the progress towards improving the public transport system in Victoria to meet the needs of a greater variety of users, including people with diverse mobility requirements. It builds upon information collated for our previous report of the Accessible Public Transport Watch Project, which surveyed the mobility needs of people with disabilities. This report uses information from that report, combined with interviews with public transport agencies, the results of a public consultation forum on accessible transport, and relevant academic publications to draw its conclusions. While the total transport system also includes private motor vehicles, taxis, aviation, shipping, active transport modes and community transport services, this report concentrates upon land-based scheduled public transport passenger services and related pedestrian movement in Victoria: i.e. buses, trains, trams and coaches.
