Rural Transport Consultation

Disability Rights UK needs your views on the barriers you face with rural transport, and how you feel rural communities can benefit from transport innovation.

Seeking Views on Consultation on Rural Transport

Disability Rights UK needs your views on the barriers you face with rural transport, and how you feel rural communities can benefit from transport innovation.

The government aims to make technology underpin radical changes in transport in the next 10 years, with profound implications for transport users and businesses including those living and working in rural areas.

Disability Rights UK wants to advise Government on the challenges and opportunities for towns, villages, and more remote areas – making it easier for people to access jobs, education, or healthcare. However, these changes will not happen without the partnership between industry, government, and local communities, especially disabled people. Disability Rights UK wants new transport policies to be inclusive and practical for all who live in our villages, towns, and more isolated locations.

Please email Stephen Brookes, Rail Policy Adviser at Disability Rights UK railpolicyadviser@disabilityrightsuk.org by 25th January with your views on the barriers you face, and how you feel rural communities can benefit from transport innovation.
