Making Accessible Connections Between Trains and Ferries


The Making Connections project created opportunities for transport operators, designers and disabled and Deaf people to work together, between February and August 2019, to explore a process for improving connections between train stations and ferry terminals.

NorthLink Ferries, CalMac Ferries, ScotRail, a design team, a number of organisations representing disabled people and more than ten disabled participants made regular contributions throughout the project process. Many others attended project events.

The project resulted in innovative ideas for better services, a Book of Challenges and Ideas, a film and a website. A response to one of the ideas was in development by the end of the project.
