EU Position

Proposal for a European Accessibility Act: The position of public transport operators and organising authorities

  • Europe
  • Accessibility
  • EU Position Papers
  • European legislation

UITP, International Association of Public Transport, supports the objective of the proposed directive, i.e. harmonization and improve functioning of the internal market.

The public transport sector is committed to a well-functioning internal market and to fully accessible transport. Not only specific sectoral national and European legislation tackles the accessibility notably of rolling stock, infrastructure, assistance, but accessibility is also integrated in the current strategies of the public transport sector. Most transport operators have been cooperating for a long time with representatives of disabled persons and persons with reduced mobility when buying new equipment or to improve their services.
