What options exist for bus travel?

In most Australian cities, buses display the international wheelchair symbol if they are wheelchair accessible.

Bus timetables show the wheelchair symbol on the cover of accessible routes and may use the letter “a” on bus stop timetables to indicate an accessible trip.

Priority seating is available on wheelchair accessible buses, with extra room by either drop seating or vacant room inside allowing for a more comfortable journey for all.  

Enabled buses include ramps (automatic or manual), trained staff and technology to provide easier boarding.  In some cases these buses tilt to allow easier access for those with mobility issues.
