The Disabled Persons Transport Advisory Committee (DPTAC)


The UK he Department for Transport has today announced the appointment of four
new members to the Disabled Persons Transport Advisory Committee (DPTAC),
and the reappointment of six existing members.

The announcement follows the statutory review of half of the Committee's
membership at the end of 2007.

The Committee has twenty members plus chair and this brings a combination
of experience and expertise to matters related to disability and transport.

The Disabled Persons Transport Advisory Committee (DPTAC) is a statutory
body established under Section 125 of the Transport Act 1985 to advise the
Secretary of State for Transport on matters affecting the transport needs
of disabled people.

Reflecting the Government's approach to diversity in public appointments,
the new Committee has 67% of members who are disabled, 38% who are women
and 10% people from minority ethnic communities. They also represent a wide
geographical spread.
