Public transport in Victoria is being made more accessible to support the needs and aspirations of people with disabilities.
Affordability and availability are important elements of the public transport system. Victorians who are unable to afford a ticket or access transport services might be prevented from accessing employment, educational and social opportunities.
A number of concessions are available to assist Senior Victorians, students, people on low incomes and people with accessibility needs. For more information, see Free travel passes or concession fares.
There are also services and support to enable everyone to feel more confident in using public transport. Use the links below for information about accessible transport in Melbourne and Victoria:
