The report shows that complaints about public transport fell 47% from the previous year due to lockdowns and travel restrictions.

For the 2020/2021 year, overall approaches at 2072 were down 39% from the previous year (3373). Complaints and investigations decreased 47% from 2428 to 1292.

The year began and ended with Melbourne and Victoria going into lockdowns to curb the spread of COVID-19, with public transport patronage falling as low as 9% in some weeks. The reduced passenger trips and transactions went against the long-term trend of Melbourne’s growing population and public transport usage, complaints to the PTO fell but not as much as patronage. Although patronage fell under 10% of the previous year’s baseline on some modes, approaches to the PTO only fell as low as 30% compared to last year.

Approaches to the PTO, including complaints, can have one or more issues recorded. The top 5 issue categories within approaches were:

  • Staff: 1007
  • Service delivery: 744
  • Ticketing: 672
  • Land and Infrastructure: 559
  • COVID-19: 328
