How are the SNP improving Scotland’s transport system for disabled people

In September 2016 the SNP Government launched Scotland’s first Accessible Travel Framework, which is designed to improve the accessibility of Scotland’s transport system for disabled people.  The Framework was produced after two years of partnership working between disabled people, disability organisations, transport operators and government. The Framework’s blueprint will tackle issues faced by disabled people, and work to eliminate the barriers that make travelling difficult for some and as a result prevent participation in everyday life.

Over 1.3 million older and disabled people have benefited from free public transport through the National Concessionary Bus Travel Scheme.
