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, together with our Transport Portfolio partners Main Roads and the Department of Transport, has developed the Transport Portfolio Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) for 2022-2027.
The DAIP aims to ensure that people with a disability have the same opportunity as other people to access PTA public transport services, information and facilities.
The PTA has also developed the PTA Implementation Plan for Transport Portfolio Disability Access and Inclusion Plan which demonstrates our commitment to providing a high level of independence for all passengers.
Our current 2022-2027 DAIP is available below.
The DAIP, Implementation Plan and Accessibility Policy will be made available in alternative formats upon request, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning (08) 9326 2651.
