Travellers to Victoria and Melbourne benefit from the compact
nature of the state and the transport system which is probably the
most accessible in the country. You can travel to country stations
on VLine's country network and to key regional locations on the
specifically accessible Sprinter Train before changing to accessible,
lift equipped coach services for the rest of your journey.
Accessible coach travel is available to Adelaide and NSW.
Countrylink's XPT train provides accessible transport from
Melbourne to Canberra and Sydney.
Melbourne's suburbs are well catered for by the metropolitan rail
system, The Met. Eleven rail lines lead to the city's underground
loop system, while 62 key stations (July 1999) have been
nominated as Premium Stations with higher standards of
accessible facilities and staffing compared to others.
