Our role

On 1 July 2019, Public Transport Victoria (PTV) and VicRoads came together with the Department of Transport to create a properly integrated transport department — in step with other global cities.

On 1 January 2023, DoT was renamed the Department of Transport and Planning.

We don’t plan or operate our road, tram, or rail systems separately — we run a transport network.

The new Department of Transport and Planning gives us a singular, integrated focus on tackling the big issues — from improving buses in growing suburbs to making it easier to walk and cycle places and embrace new technology.


The staff, statutory functions and powers of PTV have been transferred or delegated to the Department of Transport and Planning under relevant statutory instruments under the Transport Integration Act 2010 and the Public Administration Act 2004.

Following the integration of Public Transport Victoria into a new Department of Transport and Planning, the organisational information on this website is subject to review.
