Transport and getting around

We believe that being blind or partially sighted shouldn't mean giving up the right to being able to independently get around.

A well placed road crossing, a clear pavement or provision of accessible bus information could stop a town centre becoming a no-go area.

Government and public bodies regularly consult on their plans and it can be a great opportunity for us to influence. It could be a Parliamentary Select Committee looking for evidence, a public body producing guidance or even the first draft of a piece of legislation.


Accessible streets

In the 'Who put that there! report we call for reviewed policies and guidance to enable blind and partially sighted people to get out and about safely and indepently.

Accessible transport

In the 'Stop for me, Speak to me' campaign report 2013 we called for dramatic improvements in bus travel for passengers with sight loss.
