Inclusive Transport Strategy Evaluation
The Inclusive Transport Strategy (ITS) is an extensive programme of work that aims to make the UK’s transport system work better for disabled people. The Government’s ambitions for inclusive transport are to ensure disabled people have the same access to transport as everyone else and for them to travel confidently, easily and without extra cost.
What are we trying to find out?
This study aims to explore the impact of the ITS, and whether disabled people have the same experiences as everyone else.
NatCen Social Research have been asked by the Department for Transport (DfT) to monitor and evaluate the ITS to explore whether and how the strategy is achieving its goals.
The evaluation will involve speaking to a range of individuals on their experiences of taking public transport, including:
- Online or telephone survey with disabled people and non-disabled travelling public through the NatCen Opinion Panel
- Online survey with assistance dog users
- In-depth interviews with disabled people
- Research with bus, taxi and train operators and local licencing authorities.
