The Government is committed to ensuring disabled people of all ages have the same access to transport and opportunities to travel as everyone else.

In July 2018 the Department published the Inclusive Transport Strategy. Its ambition is to create a transport system that provides equal access for disabled people by 2030, and to enable disabled people to travel confidently, easily and without extra cost.

In July 2019, the Department reported to Parliament on the progress it had made in delivering the many commitments set out in the Strategy.
