Accessibility

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.

Accessibility Forum May 2018

Transport Focus hosts an Accessibility Forum where user experiences can be discussed and understood as well as spreading good practice.

The latest was held at our London base on Thursday 3 May. This forum saw an extended open discussion session which was very successful. The forum continues to be multi-modal, this time looking at rail and bus issues as well as the experiences of disabled passengers and drivers using the Strategic Road Network.

The minutes of the May meeting are available here.

The next forum will take place on Thursday 25 October, 12.30pm to 2.30pm.
