Does public transport work for people with access needs?
The cross-party Transport Select Committee are keen to hear about the barriers that people with all kinds of disabilities and accessibility needs can experience when using passenger transport.
The cross-party Transport Select Committee has launched an enquiry into whether public transport works for people with access needs. They are keen to hear about the barriers that people with all kinds of disabilities and accessibility needs can experience when using passenger transport (including buses, trains, taxis, planes, and using the streets to get around) to investigate the legal obligations that exist for providing accessible passenger transport, and how these are enforced.
The Committee’s plan is to gather information and experiences to build up a general picture of where and why problems occur, and how things could be improved, and publish these in a final report. There is the opportunity to provide a detailed response via the Committee’s website or there’s a short survey that should take 5-10 minutes to complete here.
The consultation and survey are open until Monday 20 March 2023.
