Scottish Disability Equality Forum is working with Transport Scotland to undertake research into Accessible Travel. In September 2016, Transport Scotland published Scotland’s first Accessible Travel Framework. This is a new plan, co-produced with disabled people to help improve their access to travel. Transport Scotland has a vision that all disabled people can travel with the same freedom, choice, dignity and opportunity as others.
Our research involves gathering the views of disabled people on how you find travelling on public transport just now, and how Transport Scotland’s work to apply the framework can best help improve accessibility for disabled people.
To help with this, we have developed a survey. We would like this to be completed by as many disabled people as possible, so please share it round your networks. This survey will act as a baseline to gather information about experiences of public transport, and we will build on this over the lifetime of the Accessible Travel Framework.

In addition, there is a separate survey for Transport Providers, so that we can also find out their views on accessible travel.
