Accessible Travel Framework

Transport Scotland recently launched the first national Accessible Travel Framework for Scotland; a ten-year plan to improve travel access for disabled people.

The purpose of the Framework is to support disabled people’s rights by removing barriers and improving access to travel; and ensuring disabled people are fully involved in work to improve all aspects of travel.

The Accessible Travel Hub will keep you up to date with what is happening as Transport Scotland implement the Accessible Travel Framework.
