Keep on Moving: a "transport for all" report

The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Partnership Boards have published a new report highlighting transport issues affecting older people and disabled people across our area.

Getting around our neighbourhoods, cities, county and and further afield is important for all of us. Everyone wants to get around independently for as long as possible.

Yet older residents and people with learning and physical disabilities or vision and/or hearing loss who use mobility aids such as walkers and rollators, wheelchairs, long canes - and assistance dogs - can face everyday barriers.

So the five Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Partnership Boards ran a series of joint meetings with local councils and transport companies to find out what the difficulties are and how they can help improve things.

They explored

  • Roads and footpaths
  • Taxis
  • Public transport
  • Community transport

Now their "transport for all" report, Keep on Moving, has been published and highlights some of the issues and the changes they would like to see.

The report's recommendations 

The Partnership Boards want to see five changes.

  • All councils and the Combined Authority should ask people with disabilities for their views on changes to roads and pavements.
  • All councils should bring in disability and safeguarding training as part of licensing taxi drivers.
  • All bus services in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough should have audio and visual announcements.
  • Bus companies should ask local people with disabilities, carers and older people for their views about bus routes.
  • Community transport schemes should ask their members about what services they would like in future.
