PSVAR (Public Service Vehicles Accessibility Regulations)

The powers of the Equality Act 2010 allow the government to make regulations requiring all new land-based public transport vehicles (trains, taxis, buses and coaches) to be accessible to disabled people, including those who need to remain in wheelchairs.

The regulations that govern access to buses and coaches are known as PSVAR. PSVAR has been applied to all new buses and coaches which carry more than 22 passengers and are used on local or scheduled services since 31 December 2000.

You can read all about PSVAR (Public Service Vehicles Accessibility) on the Department for Transport website.
