Transport accessibility plans introduced by government

Fri 10 Aug 2018

New funding plans for transport accessibility have been published by the Department for Transport.

Up to £300 million has been made available to improve transport accessibility for people with visible and ‘less visible’ disabilities. The plans include installing Changing Places toilets at motorway service stations and making audio and visual equipment available on buses.

Work will also be carried out to increase disability awareness, and there will be a new accreditation scheme to recognise positive work in improving disabled passengers’ experiences on transport.

Travelling after brain injury can become a challenge for many people for a number of reasons. Headway hopes that the above plans will ensure that brain injury survivors receive more support and understanding when travelling.

We will be scrutinising the detailed plans as they become available and speaking out where we think further improvements will help brain injury survivors.

The Department for Transport aims to make transport fully accessible by 2030.
