Accessible Transport for All
Our Accessible Transport for All project was created at the beginning of 2020 after our members relayed their experiences of travelling around Norfolk. Through our physical disabilities project we also noticed a trend around access to transport for those living in residential care homes. The first phase of our project involves inviting taxi firms to take part in the project. If they do not want to take part we will independently review their accessibility.
The taxi firms will be assessed using the following criteria:
Availability of information
Physical access of office/premises
Awareness of staff
Attitude towards Disability
Availability of accessible vehicles
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have had to put the transport project on hold. We are ready and as soon as we are able to we will resume the project to ensure accessible transport is available for all.
Our survey is still live. If you haven't completed it already please share your experiences. It will enable us to build a clearer picture of the barriers faced.
We can also talk through the survey on the phone, if you would prefer.
