Who are we
The All Aboard campaign is a collaborative initiative between accessibility advocates, community sector organisations and local government to raise concerns about the level of access provided by Victoria’s public transport system.
The campaign is run by the All Aboard Action Network, which is currently facilitated by the Victorian Council of Social Service (VCOSS). The All Aboard Action Network hosts regular meetings where participants discuss accessible transport issues and co-ordinate the campaign.

The All Aboard Action Network works to achieve a transport system that is independently and universally accessible in Victoria.
The All Aboard Working Group aims to:
- Persuade the Victorian Government and other Victorian transport agencies to invest in public transport network improvements to achieve independent and universal accessibility
- Ensure the voices of people who experience reduced transport mobility due to inaccessibility, and their representatives, are heard in decision-making processes
- Educate and inform the wider community about the benefits of accessible transport, and increase awareness of the problem among the public
The All Aboard Working Group will achieve this by:
- Conducting public campaigns to raise the profile of the issue in the eyes of decision-makers, transport agencies, the media and the general public
- Providing a forum for accessible transport advocates to share information and evidence that will build support for improving the accessibility of the transport network
- Providing a forum where accessible transport advocates can discuss the issues and determine the priorities that should be acted upon
