EU Buses and Coaches Directive (2001/85/EC)


The Directive relates to special provisions for vehicles used for the carriage of passengers comprising more than eight seats in addition to the driver's seat, and amending Directives 70/156/EEC and 97/27/EC.

The 2001 directive finally entered into force on by the voting into force of the Framework Directive on Vehicle-Type Approval (10 May 2007). This makes it mandatory that all new urban buses must ensure accessibility for disabled people.
