Disability access and mobility

The standards establish minimum accessibility requirements to be met by providers and operators of public transport conveyances, infrastructure and premises.

All public transport services, including associated vehicles and infrastructure, are subject to the Commonwealth Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport 2002.

The disability action plan outlines how we can improve accessibility for people with disabilities using our public transport system.

A disability parking permit is granted to applicants when their ability to walk is severely restricted by a medical condition or disability.

This plan has been developed to enable the department to improve participation of people with a disability.

Mobility devices, such as wheelchairs and mobility scooters are an essential part of daily life for people with a mobility impairment.
