The Department of Transport (DoT) invites people who use a mobility device to participate in the central Melbourne mobility map trial.
In partnership with mapping and navigation company Briometrix and wheelchair pilots, DoT has developed a new interactive effort-based mobility map of Melbourne’s sports and arts precincts.
The map will help people plan their journey and to travel confidently and comfortably to some of the great places Melbourne has to offer.
It’s the first effort-based mobility map in Melbourne to integrate public transport information with the footpath network.
The new effort-based map has been designed to help people who use mobility devices such as wheelchair or aids such as crutches find the most accessible route around Melbourne’s sports and arts precincts.
The map shows you the easiest way to get to where you need to go if you use a mobility device, such as a wheelchair, motorised mobility scooter, walker or are on crutches.
The colour-coded map shows the level of effort needed to travel along a pathway in a wheelchair.
The map helps to connect you to sporting and tourism destinations, accessible toilets and parking, and transport connections within the precincts.
The map covers Melbourne’s sports precinct between Flinders Street, Punt Road and the Yarra River, and the adjoining arts precinct across St Kilda Road, CityLink, Grant Street, Power Street, Whiteman Street, King Street and Flinders Street.
Help evaluate the map by completing the Department of Transport’s user survey on Engage Victoria website by 31 October 2022.
