Accessible public transport in Victoria: action plan 2006-2012

The Victorian Government's 'Accessible public transport in Victoria action plan 2006-2012' provides a framework for achieving accessible public transport in Victoria for people with disabilities. It covers mainstream public transport for which the Victorian Government has direct responsibility, including: 1. Metropolitan rail, tram and bus services; 2. Regional rail, coach and bus services; and 3. Taxi services. This action plan is designed to ensure that at minimum, access is provided in line with the requirements of the Federal Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA) and the accompanying Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport 2002 (DSAPT). The DSAPT sets out standards by which public transport infrastructure and vehicles can comply with the DDA. It also prescribes timing of progress towards full compliance over twenty years through a series of milestones at five-year intervals (from 2002 to 2022). This action plan concentrates on achieving the 2007 and 2012 milestones, but also lays out principles for ongoing progress beyond 2012.
