Petition: Tell the VIC Government to Make Public Transport Work for Everyone

For 40 years The government is bound by the Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport 2002 to make all tram stops accessible by the end of 2022, but over the last 20 years there has been so little progress that there is now no possible way they can meet this deadline. People with disabilities have been campaigning for equal access to independent travel for over 40 years, and at the current rate of change the system will finally be inclusive in 2066!

We have waited long enough. Making public transport work for everyone must be an urgent priority in the 2021 budget. We all deserve the same rights to free movement and our community is richer and stronger when everyone can participate.
