Making events accessible

Choosing a venue: Public transport

Remember that it is not only the venue that needs to be accessible. It is equally important to check out local public transport - for example, train stations, accessible bus routes, accessible taxis and services like Dial-a-Ride, etc.

Where people are travelling by train it can be helpful for someone to meet them at the station if that is possible.

The following are comments made by people who use services:

Wheelchair accessible vehicles with drivers who understand the needs of the wheelchair user are needed at the station. We need to know that we can pre-book these.

I can’t travel on my own, so make sure someone can travel with me.
