COTA Queensland is a member of the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) Accessibility Reference Group. The Group aims to improve and promote the accessibility of the Queensland passenger transport network. The Group met in Brisbane on 24 January, and the main agenda item was public transport planning for the Commonwealth Games on 4-15 April.
TMR and GC2018 representatives emphasised that, during the Games, there will be an ‘assisted access’ program, people will have multiple options to get to venues, and a dedicated Commonwealth Games journey planner (with specific information about accessibility options) will be launched in February.
COTA Queensland will provide further information as it comes to hand.
