Championing equal access on public transport

it’s everyone’s journey’ brings together those who want to improve public transport for disabled people and deliver real change. It has been developed by the Department for Transport in partnership with industry, disability groups and disabled people. ...

How everyone can make a difference

Disabled people travel up to a third less than non-disabled people impacting on access to employment, healthcare, education and social activities. Barriers to public transport are not limited to reliability and the physical infrastructure but also include the attitudes and behaviours of staff and fellow passengers.

If everyone using public transport takes small steps to be mindful of their fellow passengers, we can all make transport more inclusive.

Behaviour change normally takes a bit more than some advertising. But live in hope.
