Around five per cent of rail and more than 20 per cent of bus journeys are made by people with a disability or long-term illness; but accessibility is also an issue for those travelling with heavy luggage or small children.

Transport Focus works to support improved accessibility on rail, bus, coach and tram, and to ensure that the views of passengers with disabilities are driving change.
