Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles
520. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the steps he has taken to ensure there is an adequate availability of wheelchair accessible taxis; his plans to expand wheelchair accessible taxi availability; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [50200/19]
The regulation of the small public service vehicle (SPSV) industry, including measures to promote the availability of SPSVs by persons with disabilities, is a matter for the National Transport Authority (NTA) under the provisions of the Taxi Regulation Act 2013.
Accordingly, I have referred your question to the NTA for direct reply to you. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within 10 working days.
