Public transport infrastructure grants
The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is committed to creating a single integrated network accessible to everyone.
As part of this commitment, we offer funding grants to local councils across Queensland to upgrade passenger transport infrastructure to improve customer safety, accessibility and comfort.
Passenger Transport Accessible Infrastructure Program (PTAIP)
The Passenger Transport Accessible Infrastructure Program (PTAIP) provides funding assistance to local councils to upgrade existing passenger transport facilities to ensure they comply with Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) (1992) requirements.
Since inception, PTAIP has provided more than $29 million in funding to councils across Queensland to upgrade their public transport infrastructure, including urban bus stops and long-distance coach stops.
Grants are also available for improvements to ferry pontoons/jetties and remote aerodrome terminals.
invite local councils to submit applications annually and, if approved for funding, applicants receive a 50% contribution towards the total cost of making the transport infrastructure accessible.
