2022 Review of the Transport Standards

The Transport Standards provide requirements for public transport operators and providers to make their services accessible and remove discrimination for people with disability.  A discussion paper is available and includes guiding questions to help you provide input and prompt your views and experiences on different areas of the Transport Standards.

A short online survey is now available to have your say as part of the review.  It will take between 15 and 20 minutes to complete the survey, depending on the length of your written responses. The survey will be open until 7 April 2023.

People with disability are strongly encouraged to share their public transport experiences to ensure the effectiveness of the Transport Standards is improved. Family members, carers and advocates, public transport operators and providers, and state or territory governments are also encouraged to share their experiences.

Every 5 years, the Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, in consultation with the Attorney-General, is required to review the efficiency and effectiveness of the Transport Standards. The review must:

  • report on the effectiveness and efficiency of the Transport Standards
  • report on whether discrimination has been removed as far as possible
  • include any necessary amendments to the Transport Standards.

Public consultation events will be announced in early 2023.
