Accessible Transport Strategy 2025

Closed 20 Nov 2015

Opened 28 Aug 2015


The Accessible Transport Strategy was first published in 2005 having been developed within the context of the Regional Transportation Strategy for Northern Ireland 2002 - 2012 which acknowledged that many people in Northern Ireland  were unable to use, or make full use of the transportation system because of the barriers they face. 

As this strategy is due to finish in 2015,  the Department for Regional Development is seeking your views on the development of a new strategy and the barriers to transport which still remain for people with a disability and older people which may prevent the use of public transport.

How to Respond

In this consultation document, we have set out the vision and proposed strategic themes for the new Accessible Strategy.  This has been developed following extensive engagement with older people and people with a disability and their representatives. The results of this consultation will help to inform the development of a new Accessible Transport Strategy up to 2025.
