Following the continued easing of COVID restrictions and the return of many to public transport, a coalition of influencers, disability charities and transport operators have joined forces with the Department for Transport (DfT) calling on passengers to see this re-emergence as a chance to rethink travel habits and help create a more inclusive transport environment for everyone.

1 in 4 disabled users of public transport say that other passengers make them anxious or nervous.

According to research, the majority of public transport users recently surveyed (75%) feel that passengers hold at least some of the responsibility for helping to improve journeys for disabled people.

Aston spoke to YouTuber and Podcaster Daniel Jones of The Aspie World and Louise Rubin, head of policy at Scope.
