Webinar: 2022 Review of the Disability Transport Standards

This event has passed Register

Event description

Link to join the webinar:

The Transport Standards provide requirements for public transport operators and providers to make their services accessible and remove discrimination for people with disability.

Every 5 years, the Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government, in consultation with the Attorney-General, is required to review the efficiency and effectiveness of the Transport Standards.

This webinar is part of a series of consultation events to hear from people with disability, families and carers, and public transport operators and providers to inform the 2022 Transport Standards Review.

It’s important to have your say to tell us whether the current Transport Standards are reducing discrimination against people with disability on public transport services.

The Discussion Paper is available to read here.

An Easy English version of the Discussion Paper is available to read here.

An Auslan version of the Discussion paper can be viewed here.

What we will cover

The webinar will include a panel discussion with Disability Discrimination Commissioner, Dr Ben Gauntlett and will provide an overview of the Transport Standards Review process. Through the online tool, you will also be able to share your views and experiences to help shape the findings of the Review.

With your feedback, we’ll be able to assess whether the Standards are effective, what needs change and how to best change it.

You might have already shared concerns during consultations to reform the Transport Standards in 2021 and 2022. We still want to hear from you about these issues as part of this separate review process.
