The Australian Government is asking the public to take part in a national online survey on public transport accessibility.
The survey is part of a regular review of Transport Standards, in which the Australian Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, in consultation with the Attorney-General, must report on the efficiency and effectiveness of Transport Standards, report on the elimination of discrimination, and detail necessary amendments to the Transport Standards.
“People with disability are strongly encouraged to share their public transport experiences, so we can take a step towards improving the effectiveness of the Transport Standards,” reads a page on the Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts’ website.
“Family members, carers and advocates, public transport operators and providers, and state or territory governments are also encouraged to share their experiences.”

The survey itself will take between 15-20 minutes to complete and is open until 11.59 pm AEST on 7 April 2023.
