The Council is required to maintain a designated list of wheelchair accessible vehicles as under the Equality Act 2010.
This list places obligations on drivers of wheelchair accessible vehicles:

  •  To carry the passenger whilst in the wheelchair
  • Not make any additional charge for doing so
  • If the passenger chooses to sit in a passenger seat to carry the wheelchair
  • To take such steps as are necessary to ensure that the passenger is carried in safety and reasonable comfort; and
  •  To give the passenger such mobility assistance as is reasonably required.

Mobility assistance is defined as follows:

  • To enable the passenger to get into or out of the vehicle
  • If the passenger wishes to remain in the wheelchair, to enable the passenger to get into or out of the vehicle while in the wheelchair
  • To load the passenger’s luggage into or out of the vehicle
  • If the passenger does not wish to remain in the wheelchair, to load the wheelchair into or out of the vehicle.

When booking a wheelchair accessible vehicle the public are advised to check with the operator that the vehicle can accommodate the particular type of wheelchair it is being booked to convey.
