Transport Access Program
The Transport Access Program is an initiative to provide a better experience for public transport customers by delivering accessible, modern, secure and integrated transport infrastructure.
The program aims to provide:
- Stations that are accessible to the disabled, ageing and parents with prams.
- Modern buildings and facilities for all modes that meet the needs of a growing population.
- Modern interchanges that support an integrated network and allow seamless transfers between all modes for all customers.
- Safety improvements including extra lighting, help points, fences and security measures for car parks and interchanges, including stations, bus stops and wharves.
- Signage improvements so customers can more easily use public transport and transfer between modes at interchanges.
- Other improvements and maintenance such as painting, new fencing and roof replacements.
The program currently consists of projects at the following locations:
For information on projects currently within the program, please see the current works below.
For information on projects that have been completed, see the completed works page.
The NSW Government is also progressively upgrading ferry wharves across Sydney to improve ferry services for customers. For more information on these new wharves, visit the RMS website.
An ongoing review is being undertaken by Transport for NSW to assess the feasibility of a number of proposed projects across the NSW public transport network. The review will take into account transport and urban planning priorities and customer experience at existing interchanges as well as an economic and business case evaluation.
Unlocking 1,200 rail staff car spaces for customers
Some 1,200 staff car spaces are being handed over to commuters at around 100 stations across the rail network.
Customers are already enjoying access to these spaces at more than half of these locations.
At some locations, handing back the spaces to customers requires construction activity and installation of security features including lighting, fencing and CCTV camera surveillance. These works are underway, and all customer spaces are scheduled to be complete in 2015.
