Weekly Poll Results – COVID-19: Return to Public Transport (Week Beginning 21 September 2020)
Each week Disability Equality Scotland send out a poll question to our members on a topical issue. For the week beginning 21 September 2020, we asked a question about disabled peoples’ experiences of using public transport during the COVID-19 pandemic. This poll was on behalf of Transport Scotland’s Accessibility Team who wanted to hear feedback from disabled people as lockdown restrictions ease and there is guidance in place to ensure commuters remain safe when using public transport. Transport Scotland were particularly keen to hear from those with sensory impairments, and so the following report will show both the total responses and the views of those with sensory impairments, commenting on any differences.
