Objectives

The objective of this research is to assess attitudes of disabled people to public transport, the current use of public transport by disabled people, and the factors, which encourage or discourage disabled people from using public transport.

Description

This survey would complement the work carried out by MORI for the Commission for Integrated Transport (CfIT), published in July 2000. It would seek to establish the attitude of disabled people to public transport, the current use of public transport by disabled people, and the factors, which encourage or discourage disabled people from using public transport. It is in part a behavioural project. It would assist DPTAC in formulating advice to Ministers on how to encourage disabled people to make greater use of public transport, thus reducing social exclusion and reliance on the private car.
