#MakeTransportAccessible is a Sight Loss Council campaign that fights to ensure blind and partially sighted people are able to rely on accessible public transport to travel independently and safely.
Blind and partially sighted people rely on a range of transport solutions to get around independently. These include public transport such as buses, trains, trams and light rail services, as well as private transport such as taxis and private hire vehicles (PHV).
All public transport providers have a duty under the Equality Act 2010 to make their services accessible. Despite this – and blind and partially sighted people’s reliance on their services – a lack of accessibility significantly hampers the ability and confidence of blind and partially sighted people to use these services.
