The Department for Transport has published the Transport Accessibility Action Plan consultation. The consultation can be accessed through www.gov.uk/government/consultations/draft-transport-accessibility-action-plan.
The consultation seeks to understand what more needs to be done to improve transport accessibility and ensure that people with physical and hidden disabilities (including autism, mental health conditions, dementia) have the same access to transport and opportunities to travel as everyone else.
The consultation is available in various formats. We are also arranging for a British Sign Language version to be uploaded shortly.
A final version of the Accessibility Action Plan is expected to be published in 2018 post-consultation.
Consultation: Transport Accessibility Action Plan consultation
Closing date: Wednesday 15 November 2017.
