star this property answer text <p>Taxis and private hire vehicles (PHVs) provide a particularly important service for many disabled people, helping them to remain independent and to complete journeys which may not be possible using other forms of transport.</p><p> </p><p>I recognise that the availability of wheelchair accessible taxis and PHVs varies across Great Britain, particularly in rural areas. I know too, however, that they can sometimes be difficult to access for some ambulant disabled people. As such we encourage local licensing authorities to use their existing powers to ensure that a range of vehicle categories are represented in their taxi and PHV fleets. We have also introduced powers in the Deregulation Act 2015 to enable the sub-contracting of PHV services across local authority boundaries, helping to ensure that wheelchair accessible vehicles are available wherever they are required.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The draft Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy was published on 27 March 2016 for public consultation and we hope to publish the final Strategy shortly. The Department’s guidance in <em>Local Transport Note 2/08: Cycle Infrastructure Design</em> is comprehensive and allows councils to design good, safe schemes that encourages cycling across all demographics. The Department will consider how to refresh this guidance to take account of the new facilities to encourage cycling introduced in the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2016.</p><p> </p><p>Furthermore, the Department is in the process of drafting an Accessibility Action Plan which seeks to address the barriers faced by disabled people in accessing public transport and the wider public realm. We have also begun the process of inviting proposals for a new programme of work to update our guidance on “Inclusive Mobility”. As part of this project we will also update our guidance on the use of tactile paving surfaces.</p><p> </p>
