Assessment of accessibility standards for disabled people in land based public transport vehicles

Since the Introduction of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995, the government has introduced a series of transport related regulations to legislate for the introduction of accessibility requirements for rail and public service vehicles.

DfT is committed to the government's 'Better Regulation' programme and has commissioned  Human Engineering  and Guide Dogs for the Blind Association to carry out a study to evaluate the accessibility of land base public transport, including trains, trams, buses, coaches, Private Hire Vehicles (PHVs) and Taxis.  A literature review was conducted to identify existing accessibility regulation relating to land-based public transport and gather any published evidence to indicate its effectiveness.
