Improving the accessibility of transport infrastructure not only benefits people with disabilities but also parents with prams, people carrying luggage, people with injuries and seniors.
The Public Transport Authority (PTA) is committed to ensuring that Western Australia’s public transport services are accessible for every member of the community. To achieve this, Transperth and Transwa services, information, infrastructure and ticketing systems are designed or are being progressively upgraded to meet the needs of all community members including people with a disability, seniors and parents with prams and young children.
The PTA Accessibility Policy has been developed as the overarching document for access. Our Accessibility Policy outlines how the PTA shall, as far as reasonably practical, provide public passenger transport services and facilities that are accessible to all passengers.
Disability Access and Inclusion Plan
The PTA has developed a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) in consultation with key stakeholders that covers all metropolitan and regional services for the period 2017-2022.
The actions described in our DAIP 2017-2022 demonstrates our commitment to providing a high-level of independence for all passengers.
Highlights of the DAIP 2017-2022 includes the continued roll-out of the station upgrade program, the purchase of low-floor accessible buses and the expansion of the Transperth rail network.
The DAIP and Accessibility Policy will be made available in alternative formats upon request, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (08) 9326 2651.
