Government promises £300 million for fully inclusive transport network | DisabledGo News and Blog


The government has pledged £300 million to make the UK’s transport network fully accessible by 2030.  The Department for Transport’s recently published Inclusive Transport Strategy outlines new funding for accessible infrastructure in railways as well as to improve Changing Places toilets at motorway service stations, and announces plans to produce league tables highlighting the operators that provide the best service for disabled people.

DisabledGo welcome this new development. It’s our mission to maximise independence and choice for disabled people in accessing their local area and the places we all want to visit and accessing public transport with confidence is a vital part of making that happen.

We publish accessibility guides to over 500 train stations in the UK and Ireland, which tell you all about the accessibility of platforms, toilets, parking, restaurants, shops and cafes within the stations and lots more.
