The regulation of the small public service vehicle (SPSV) industry, including measures to promote wheelchair accessible vehicles in the SPSV fleet, 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.

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 42A
