Access to transport for people with disabilities web forum

Recently Louise Ellman MP visited our office to chat to our members about their experiences of using public transport, as part of an inquiry into access to transport for those with disabilities. The following piece explains more about the inquiry.  To take part, please click here

The Transport Committee, chaired by Louise Ellman MP, is conducting an inquiry into access to transport for people with disabilities. It will be producing a report with recommendations during summer 2013. In advance of the appearance of the Transport Minister before the Committee on 3 June, the Committee would like to hear about your experiences as a user or carer accessing any type of transport, or your experiences as an operator of a service used by people with disabilities.

The Committee’s inquiry covers a number of areas relating to access to transport, but the Committee would particularly like to hear your views on three key areas.

Physical accessibility

Based on your experience, how accessible are public transport vehicles (buses, trains, taxis etc.) and the physical infrastructure (bus stops, stations, airports etc.)?

Travel information

How accessible or easy to use do you find travel information, including the provision of information about accessibility, routes, connections, timetables, delays and service alterations, and fares?
