Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport

The Tasmanian Government is committed to promoting inclusiveness, enhanced community participation and the reduction of barriers for people with a disability. This commitment is exemplified in the Disability Framework for Action 2005-2010, which is a whole of government policy requiring that the needs of people with disabilities are considered in the design and delivery of all Government policies, programs, services and facilities. The oversight of the implementation of the Disability Framework for Action resides with the Premier with the assistance of the Premier's Disability Advisory Council (PDAC). The PDAC also acts as a reference group to provide advice to Government on policy, programs, services and standards that impact on people with a disability.

The Framework for Action commits the Tasmanian Government to increasing the accessible passenger transport options through:

  • Continued commitment to the Transport Standards for Public Passenger Transport 2002 (Transport Standards);
  • Continued implementation of the wheelchair accessible taxi initiative;
  • Continued funding of the Transport Access Scheme;
  • Working with the Australian Government, local government and the Tasmanian industry to assist bus and coach operators meet their obligations under the Transport Standards;
  • Improving the access and mobility of people living in Tasmania's rural and regional communities; and
  • Ensuring that the Government's review of core passenger services considers issues relating to the provision of accessible services.
The Transport Standards for Public Passenger Transport 2002 has progressive targets to be reached by operators and providers of public passenger transport services and infrastructure. The Tasmanian public transport industry has made significant progress towards achieving the 31 December 2007 targets.
