Queensland Rail and DVConnect’s long time partnership


Queensland Rail have been partners of DVConnect since 2010.

Queensland Rail have generously been providing Queenslanders escaping domestic violence through DVConnect with complimentary long-haul train travel.

During the financial year 2017-2018, DVConnect transported 5594 Queenslanders out of domestic violence situations and into safety. They could not have done this without the help of Queensland Rail.

In a lot of instances, moving a survivor of domestic and family violence means moving towns or cities. As hard as this is, it means the survivor is located out of harms way, with little chance of a negative situation occurring.


About Queensland Rail

Queensland Rail, also known as QR, is a railway operator in Queensland, Australia. Owned by the Queensland Government, it operates suburban and long-distance passenger services, as well as owning and maintaining approximately 6,600 kilometres of track. Check them out on Facebook or Instagram.

I wish to sincerely thank you and the entire DVConnect team for their past and present assistance during these past few years of family turmoil. Without such a wonderful service it would be that much harder for women and children.
