New transport bill introduced

Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan has introduced legislation to move V/Line’s operations from V/Line Pty Ltd to the publicly owned V/Line Corporation.

While the move is insignificant for daily operations, the state government believes it will strengthen the public ownership of V/Line.

The Transport Integration Amendment Bill also establishes Transport for Victoria – the new agency which will coordinate Victoria’s transport systems, including VicRoads and Public Transport Victoria.
