This is a supplement to the code of practice to Part 3 of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, known as the Part 3 Code, which published as: "Rights of access to goods, facilities, services and premises" (2002, print version ISBN 0117028606). Although services associated with transport infrastructure have always been covered by Part 3 of the Act, access to transport services was exempted. Changes introduced by the Disability Discrimination Act 2005 allowed this exemption to be lifted, and this has been done by the Disability Discrimination (Transport Vehicles) Regulations 2005 (SI 2005/3190, ISBN 0110736311) which come into force on 4 December 2006. This supplementary Code sets out to explain the changes in the law. Chapters cover: the scope of the Code; what the Act says about providing services, and how this affects transport providers; the provider's duty not to treat a disabled person less favourably; making changes for disabled people ("reasonable adjustments"); reasonable adjustments in practice; can a transport provider justify less favourable treatment or make reasonable adjustments?
