Abstract

This presentation analyses an urgent problem confronting public transport operators and for the disability community: The operationalisation of the definition of disability assistance animals A few years ago the problem of access was the rogue employee or operator that denied access. The problem now is far more complex; It is far more widespread; and it is Being caused by the regulatory framework within which everyone operates. The rogue still exists, But the law has now created a situation where expensive problems occur, rights are denied and resources are unnecessarily stretched.
