What is Metro Access

Metro Access is a partnership initiative between Councils and the Victorian Government.

The aim of Metro Access is to make it easier for people with a disability to get around and join in activities in their local community. The Metro Access program assists the Council to implement its Disability Action Plan.

The role of the Metro Access and Inclusion Officer is to:
