COMMONS

Physical accessibility

Thank you very much for taking the time to submit your views to the Transport Committee. Based on your experience, how accessible are public transport vehicles (buses, trains, taxis etc) and the physical infrastructure (bus stops, stations, airports etc)?

We used your submission, along with over 300 others from members of the public, to help inform the questions we put to Norman Baker MP on 3 June 2013

The Committee will now prepare a report for publication with recommendations for improving access to transport. The report will be informed by the written and oral evidence we received and the web forum. The Government is required to issue a written response to our recommendations within two months. Both our report and the Government’s response will be published on our website.

Based on your experience, how accessible are public transport vehicles (buses, trains, taxis etc) and the physical infrastructure (bus stops, stations, airports etc.)? What are the current access barriers? What differences are there across the country? What examples of good design or good practice are there?
