Accessibility and inclusion

Our Accessibility and Inclusion Strategy will support us in creating a single integrated network accessible to everyone. 

The strategy has been developed in consultation with our customers, employees and delivery partners to provide a roadmap for embedding inclusion and accessibility into transport services, products, information, infrastructure, workplaces and work practices.

This is an important initiative when you consider the statistics (as at July 2020):

  • almost 20% of Queenslanders have a disability
  • we have a geographically diverse state, with many living in remote parts of the state
  • people are living longer—at 65 years of age Australians can expect to live half of their remaining years with some level of disability
  • Queensland is home to people from more than 220 countries, 220 languages spoken, 100 religious beliefs
  • in 2018-19 international visitors to Queensland increased to 2.8 million and domestic visitors reached 25.3 million (a large percentage of domestic travel is undertaken by people with disabilities or impairments).

We are delivering on a number of initiatives to support the strategy. The strategy provides a roadmap and opportunity to consolidate and focus on the future.

Our Accessibility and Inclusion Plan 2023-2024 was developed to outline the practical actions the department will take over the next 2 years to deliver on our strategy.
