The Andrews Labor Government has introduced legislation to establish Transport for Victoria (TfV) – a new transport agency to coordinate Victoria’s road and public transport system and plan for its future.
TfV will be like Transport for London (TfL) and other transport agencies around the world in that it will bring together the planning, management and coordination of Victoria’s transport system, including VicRoads and Public Transport Victoria.
To support the number of people using the road and public transport systems, the Labor Government is delivering the biggest pipeline of major transport projects in Victoria’s history, including the Metro Tunnel, Western Distributor, 50 level crossing removals and many others.
TfV will coordinate services while this unprecedented infrastructure program is delivered, and provide a single source of information for transport users to make it easier for people to plan their journey.
Minister for Roads Luke Donnellan said: “The number of people using our road and public transport networks is growing every year. Transport for Victoria will help us manage this growth by better coordinating all aspects of our transport system.
“It will provide a single source of information for motorists and passengers, and help keep Melbourne moving while we deliver the major road and public transport projects Victoria needs.”
