Sectoral Plan for Accessible Transport under the Disability Act 2005
This website describes the Sectoral Plan for Accessible Transport under the Disability Act 2005. This Sectoral Plan has been developed in accordance with the provisions of the Disability Act 2005 and addresses the accessibility needs of people with mobility, sensory and cognitive impairments across the transport modes. It has been prepared following an extensive consultation exercise involving meetings and discussions with a wide range of groups in the sector. The Plan sets out policy and objectives for accessible transport and defines the concept 'Transport for All'. It sets out for each area of transport covered, the specific accessibility issues relevant to those areas and the proposals of the Minister for Transport, and the agencies under his aegis, in relation to the rolling out of a comprehensive programme of accessible transport.
