Transport—accessibility (Question No 2004)

Ms Bresnan asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 14 February 2012:

Can the Minister provide the most recent data on the ACT's level of compliance with the Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport relating to vehicles and infrastructure.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

There are approximately 3000 bus stops in the ACT and 886 (i.e. 30%) of these bus stops were found to meet compliance standards in 2011. TAMS is committed, through its capital works program, to be 55% compliant by December 2012; 90% by 2017 and 100% by 2022.

As at 31 January 2012, ACTION has 210 buses or 49.07% of its in-service fleet that are compliant, with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).

ACTION is on target to meet the December 2012 target of 55% of the in-service fleet being DDA compliant.

Ms Bresnan asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 14 February 2012:

(1) What policies and procedures does ACTION use to prevent ACTION buses leaving from bus stops earlier than the scheduled time.

(2) Do buses wait at stops if they arrive early and is the Government aware of instances when ACTION buses leave stops earlier than the scheduled time.

(3) Is the Government aware of any practices or instances where ACTION buses begin routes late in order to avoid arriving early at stops along the route; if so, on which routes does this occur.

(4) Are there particular policies regarding early arrivals for suburban routes, given that some routes are hourly or half hourly.
