Thank you very much for taking the time to submit your views to the Transport Committee. 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.
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?
The Department for Transport recently launched its Transport Direct website for the UK, which includes a function for planning an accessible journey. If you have tried this how useful did you find it? Do you have any suggestions for improvement?
To what extent should we rely on technology (e.g. use of the internet and smartphone apps) to make journey planning easier in the future? How can we ensure everyone is able to benefit from this technology?
