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 is currently working with our Transport Portfolio partners Main Roads and the Department of Transport to develop a Portfolio Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP). The plan aims to improve access to our services, information and facilities for people with disability.
In March 2022, we undertook community consultation to inform and guide this plan. Thank you to everyone who participated, as your ideas and opinions are valued. These results are now being analysed and we look forward to sharing a combined DAIP for 2022 to 2027 later this year.
Our current 2017-2022 DAIP is available below.
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.
