Transport Scotland - Ferries Accessibility Fund
The purpose of the Ferries Accessible Fund aims to improve the accessibility of ferries and ports and to enhance the ferry travelling experience of disabled people and others facing mobility or access challenges. This includes passengers that have hidden disabilities.
The fund supports the Accessible Travel Framework for Scotland, whose purpose is to:
- Support disabled people’s rights by removing barriers and improving access to travel
- Ensure disabled people are fully involved in work to improve all aspects of travel.
There must be a clear link into active and sustainable travel and be linked to ferry passage, particularly in areas such as sustainable communities, the built environment and encouraging multi-modal travel.
