Disabled Persons Transport Advisory Committee
The Disabled Persons Transport Advisory Committee (DPTAC) is an independent body established by the Transport Act 1985 to advise Government on the transport needs of disabled people. This web-site provides information on who DPTAC are and what DPTAC does in its role in advising the Government.
DPTAC advocate the promotion of an accessible transport system in the advice given to Government. An accessible transport system is one that recognises the need for every stage in the journey to be accessible to disabled people. It sets out to include as many people as possible. It does not attempt to meet every single need. Rather, by considering people's diversity, accessible transport systems try to break down unnecessary barriers and exclusion. In doing so it will often achieve superior solutions that benefit everyone.
