Our role

On 1 July 2019, Public Transport Victoria (PTV) and VicRoads came together with the Department of Transport to create a properly integrated transport department — in step with other global cities.

We don’t plan or operate our road, tram, or rail systems separately — we run a transport network.

The new Department of Transport gives us a singular, integrated focus on tackling the big issues — from improving buses in growing suburbs to making it easier to walk and cycle places and embrace new technology.

Governance

The staff, statutory functions and powers of PTV have been transferred or delegated to the Department of Transport under relevant statutory instruments under the Transport Integration Act 2010 and the Public Administration Act 2004.

Following the integration of Public Transport Victoria into a new Department of Transport, the organisational information on this website is subject to review.
