New steps are being taken to ensure all content shown on City Loop screens meets the community’s expectations, following a review undertaken by Transport for Victoria.

It also found that a stringent review process and compliance regime to monitor content was not in place for all content being aired.
To address these issues, the Government will now extend the application of the current advertising guidelines to cover all paid content on screens in the City Loop.
Metro Trains Melbourne will now work with content providers to ensure all content shown on City Loop screens complies with these changes and that a clear complaints process be put in place.
Metro Trains Melbourne has also been asked to look at initiatives, such as closed captions, to ensure content is as accessible as possible to the millions of people that use Victoria’s public transport system every year, and to minimise platform noise.
The Government believes this approach strikes the right balance, ensuring that what is shown on City Loop screens is accessible, meets community expectations and is appropriate at all times.
