Transport means independence

Transport helps to get us to college, work, the doctor, a friend's house - and accessible  transport can transform someone’s life.

That means clear signs and timetables, easy-read information, trained customer -facing staff, and accessible toilets, priority seating and ramps.

Without these accessible services, life can be a lot more difficult. 

Why is transport important?

Most people with a learning disability cannot drive, and many families with a disabled child do not have a car. Good transport links can quite simply be the difference between living independently and not.

Reliable accessible transport services make it possible to get to a job, get to doctor's appointments, go to a day centre, meet friends in town - without depending on support workers, friends or family.

How to get the support you need

Phone or email the Learning Disability Helpline, which is our advice and support service, for guidance and information about what support we can offer you.

Or why not take a look at our online community? This is a place for parents and family carers of people with a learning disability to share experiences, advice and support.
