In May 2017, Disability Equality Scotland conducted a national survey on behalf of Transport Scotland. This was a baseline survey to allow us to gather information about disabled peoples’ experiences of travelling on public transport. The survey gave us lots of useful information, and some that we want to find out more about.
One of the key topics was access to transport information.
As a disabled person travelling on public transport, information is crucial to make you feel confident and safe to travel independently. This information has to be available in an accessible way to be useful to disabled people. This could include accessible timetables, accessible announcements and staff available to assist.
We have designed a short survey about access to transport information. This short survey looks at disabled peoples’ experiences of travelling on public transport and the information that is available to assist independent travel. Feedback from this survey will be passed directly to Transport Scotland, although your personal details will remain confidential and anonymous.
