Keeping Victoria moving

As our communities grow, the services people rely on need to grow, too – including our local buses.

We are delivering more local bus services as part of a $36 million investment to deliver Victoria’s Bus Plan. This includes the extension of Route 433 in Maddingley, continued services in the communities of Casey and Wyndham, and the commencement of transition to Zero Emission Buses (ZEBs) in new Metropolitan Bus Service Contracts from 2025.

We’ll also strengthen Victoria’s public transport with $11 million to support increased demand for the Multi‑Purpose Taxi Program (MPTP) and continuation of the current MPTP lifting fee paid to drivers for wheelchair accessible vehicle trips.

We’ll keep investing to safely transport goods and materials to support Victoria and its future infrastructure needs:

  • $47 million to undertake critical maintenance works and rebuild local piers and jetties across our state. This will improve safety for users and support Victoria's maritime sector and visiting seafarers.
  • $3.5 million to maintain the Mode Shift Incentive Scheme, encouraging the transfer of freight from road to rail and getting trucks off our roads.
