National Accessible Transport Taskforce update—December 2021

On 9 December 2021 the National Accessible Transport Taskforce (the Taskforce) met for the final time in 2021 to discuss the consultation plan for the Stage 2 Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (RIS).

With 54 areas of reform to the Transport Standards to be included in the Consultation RIS, the Taskforce is working to ensure people are able to easily understand reform areas and engage in the consultation process to have their say. The Consultation RIS and supporting documents will be released for public feedback in early 2022.

We would like to thank all members of the Taskforce for their hard work throughout 2021 to develop the suite of reforms and for their ongoing work to assist with the modernisation process.

As Infrastructure and Transport Ministers were unable to meet in December 2021, the Stage 1 Decision RIS will be considered when they next meet in early 2022.
