Consultations
Department of Transport
  • Consultation process deptsOSDP, Social
    Development, Stats SA, Home Affairs, Operators
    SARCC, Shosholoza Meyl, Metrorail,Sekuma, Putco
    Metropolitan municipalities Ethekhwini,
    Tshwane
  • Pilot projects Recommendations
  • DFID study on technological vehicular designs
    Recommended local bus designs DPTA , SAFCD Taxi
  • Integration of governmental processes HANIS
    project
  • Road to Safety Strategy Arrive Alive Awareness

5
Consultation
Department of Transport
  • Data collection to determine the extent of needs
    and public T gaps within the current system
  • Undertake a review and strategy development
    exercise in metros
  • Map out the strategy and identify strategic
    options for implementation
  • Review international responses and align with
    local practical actions
  • Develop a detailed strategic plan for further
    roll-outs
  • Integrate actions and policy directions from
    transport structures LTCC, RTCC, COTO, MINCOM

6
Challenges
Department of Transport
  • Lack of policy on Accessible transport
  • Lack of commitment by politicians, heads of
    departments, institutions, civil society
  • Lack of capacity and technical skills at local
    government level
  • Lack of common definition on disabled people

7
Challenges
Department of Transport
  • Current structural design
  • Land-use /development planning and transport
    planning
  • Physical infrastructure and interior of the
    vehicles
  • Implement Non-motorized transport planning
    guidelines
  • Waterways and airline services to make provision
    for accessible facilities
  • Operational challenges
  • Transport services not yet demand-responsive
  • Dedicated transport services not fully meeting
    the needs of the disabled people, and has proved
    to be very expensive
  • No proper coordination with other modes

8
Challenges
Department of Transport
  • Lack of data categories of disability and
    geographical location, need i.t.o.modal split
  • Inadequate funding for a fully-integrated
    transport system

9
Challenges cont
Department of Transport
  • Additional Operational challenges
  • Municipal buses not operative on Sundays
  • Public address systems and communication aids
    billboards and audible announcements
  • Attitudinal challenges both drivers and public
  • Technical and mechanical skills of retrofitted
    lifts
  • Lack of data for planning and decision-making
    purposes
  • Inadequate funding hence re-prioritization of
    plans and a phased-approach

10
Objectives Principles
Department of Transport
  • Objectives
  • To integrate accessible transport into the public
    transport system
  • To promote the provision of accessible transport
    across all modes
  • To provide a barrier-free public transport
    service and related infrastructure
  • Principles
  • Accessibility ( universal access),
    affordability, pragmatism, incremental
    implementation, integration, empowerment
    coorperation

11
Target group
Department of Transport
  • 3 Categories of vulnerable groups
  • Life cycle passengers children, pregnant women,

    impaired, intellectual disability and others
    physically frail due to old age, chronic
    diseases, polio or similar disadvantage,
    illiterate, foreigners, etc

12
Interventions
Department of Transport
  • Spatial targeting and transport planning
  • strategic accessible network and corridors
  • Reform the current structural design(fully
    accessible pedestrian networks linking common
    trip origins and destinations with the accessible
    PT route).
  • Operations and technological designsAll land
    based public transport modes are being targeted
    passengerrail, buses, mini-taxis in the short
    -term

13
Interventions
Department of Transport
  • Discussions on water transport and airlines
    service providers

    corridors by municipality As by end of 2004/05
    financial year
  • Implementation of at least 2 accessible
    transport corridors by municipality Bs by end of
    2006/07
  • Full access to refurbished railway stations,
    interchanges, pedestrian environment by 2005/06
  • Improvements to all elements of travel chain at
    Key accessible corridors by 2006/07
