This is the final report for the project entitled ‘Travel, Transport, and Mobility of people who are blind and partially sighted in the UK’. The project was funded by the RNIB. The aim of the research was to gain a clear understanding of the opinions and circumstances of registered blind and partially sighted people in relation to travel, transport and mobility. The project has two distinct phases: The first phase involved an in-depth analysis of qualitative data relating to ‘transport, travel and mobility’ which had been collected during the first survey of the Network 1000 project. The second phase ‘connected’ these qualitative sources of data to closed questions related to this topic, as well as synthesising these findings with other relevant literature. This report presents outcomes of the both phases of the project.
