All public transport providers have a duty under the Equality Act 2010 to make their services accessible. Despite that, standard of accessibility on public transport isn’t high enough to allow independent travel. Our #MakeTransportAccessible campaign aims to change that.
Our #MakeTransportAccessible campaign works to ensure blind and partially sighted (BPS) people can rely on accessible public transport to travel independently and safely. We tackle issues at the local and national level.
Accessible public transport infrastructure is vital to ensure all BPS people can live the lives they want to lead. This includes access to work, education, services, community life, family and friends, leisure, and recreation.
Our work focusses on raising awareness and demanding change at both local and national levels by working with local authorities, central government and transport operators.
