Description:

Taking into account the latest Government recommendations regarding social distancing and working from home regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, we have made the decision in conjunction with the trainers that this course will now be delivered via distance learning. The course will still have all the course work, workshops and interactivity as those delivered in the classroom, allowing for the same level of learning while taking into account the recommendations for these special circumstances. There will be a live trainer facilitating this course from 9:00 - 17:00 GMT.

This course provides an introduction into the area of accessibility and public transport integration. Drawing on a range of case studies and approaches, this course examines the latest access and inclusion agenda as it relates to public transport and interchange, the role of the community transport and taxi sector, station travel planning and multimodal access to rail, as well as BRT and more conventional bus and rail integration. The key role of active travel to stimulate greater use of public transport and the types of interchange and ‘last mile’ improvements needed to encourage this will also be covered.

The course will outline the latest thinking on access, diversity and inclusion as set out in DfT’s Inclusive Transport Strategy, as well as explaining the main principles of the Equality Act.

The course, run in an interactive workshop format, will also look at the implications of regulations including the PSVAR requirements and the Office of Rail and Road’s Accessible Transport Policy. Finally it will consider the role of station travel plans and how these tools can be used to provide holistic accessibility solutions.
