    About Public Transport Victoria (PTV)

    Public Transport Victoria (PTV) is a statutory authority that acts as a system authority for all public transport and an advocate for public transport users. We are a single contact point for customers wanting information on public transport services, fares, tickets and initiatives. PTV aims to improve public transport in Victoria by ensuring better coordination between modes, facilitating expansions to the network, auditing public transport assets, promoting public transport as an alternative to the car.

    To put this in perspective:

    • We have a hand in over half a billion trips across the public transport network annually
    • We facilitate 1.6 million trips a day
    • We move hundreds of thousands of people around the state daily

    In practical terms, we move people towards many of life's most meaningful experiences, whether it be work, education, social engagements, play, or Melbourne's key attractions (e.g. Australian Open, AFL games, Royal Melbourne Show... take your pick). When masses of people need to get from point A to point B - know that PTV has played a role. While our core business is public transport, we are also working toward a much bigger, longer-term and impactful agenda. We are contributing toward Victoria's liveability and economic development.

    While we are continuing to learn and improve, we do in-fact pull off some pretty amazing things. So, if contributing toward Victoria's future excites you, take this ad as an invite to come and work with us.
