Members of DPTAC are mostly, but not exclusively disabled people. They are public appointees recruited to serve for about 3 years.
Members require a high level of understanding of the transport needs of disabled people.
They are required to work with others to constructively and pragmatically increase opportunities for disabled people to travel independently and safely. DPTAC members work with Department for Transport officials, representatives of the transport sector and organisations representing disabled people in order to achieve these goals.
The current members are:
Mike Brace CBE DL
Helen Dolphin MBE
Bryan Matthews BA MA CMILT
David Partington MBE
