Managing complaints

We know there are times where you may require additional assistance or would like to escalate your feedback to a complaint. We seek to handle all complaints as quickly and fairly as possible.

Complaints relating to Rail Projects Victoria must first be submitted for internal dispute resolution (IDR). We will attempt to resolve the matter when you contact us via the Major Transport Infrastructure Authority (MTIA) Information Line (1800 105 105), or online via the Metro Tunnel or Regional Rail Revival websites. If your concern cannot be resolved quickly, it will be assigned to a case manager for further investigation. A response will be provided that is fair and honest.

If you are still dissatisfied with the initial outcome you may:

  • request that the matter be referred to a senior manager for review by calling the MTIA Information Line (1800 105 105) and asking for the matter to be escalated. You will be advised in writing of the outcome of this review. If you are still not satisfied with the response after this senior manager review, you can lodge your complaint for external dispute resolution with the Public Transport Ombudsman (PTO).

or

  • refer the complaint for external dispute resolution with the Public Transport Ombudsman (PTO).

The PTO is an independent and external dispute resolution body. The PTO aim to provide cost free, independent resolutions to public transport complaints having regard to what is fair and reasonable for all parties, good industry practice and the law.
