Travelling in the Shoes of Others
Travelling in the Shoes of Others is a half-day workshop for people who work in or with public transport. Participants access public transport with a simulated disability or mobility restriction. They experience some of the challenges that people with different needs face on public transport.
The workshop highlights the need to build good design and accessibility principles into public transport planning, infrastructure and customer service. Find more information at Travelling in the Shoes of Others.
Public Transport Access Committee
The Public Transport Access Committee provides independent strategic advice to the Minister for Public Transport and PTV, on matters to the accessibility of our public transport network. The committee's aim is to create a public transport system that is inclusive and accessible to all Victorians. Find more information at Public Transport Access Committee.
