The Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development is currently working with stakeholders to develop a set of guidelines that address a ‘whole-of-journey’ approach to accessible public transport planning and delivery. This is a recommendation from the second review of the Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport 2002. Arup is assisting with the development of these guidelines.
To date, the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development has hosted a series of workshops attended by more than 100 people from around the country who are involved in the planning, delivery and use of public transport services and infrastructure.
The Department is looking to hear from as many people as possible about their experiences in relation to whole-of-journey planning for public transport, especially those with heightened accessibility requirements. A survey has been created for public transport users to share their experiences. The survey should take around fifteen minutes to complete.
