What we do

The Disabled Persons Transport Advisory Committee (DPTAC) advises the government on transport legislation, regulations and guidance and on the transport needs of disabled people, ensuring disabled people have the same access to transport as everyone else. On 12 June 2013, it was decided to retain DPTAC to advise DfT on accessibility issues relating to disabled people.

DPTAC is an advisory non-departmental public body of the Department for Transport.
