The Consumer Council celebrate World Health Organization success

Accessible Travel Highly Commended at Belfast Healthy City Awards

The Consumer Council is celebrating after our transport access audits were recognised for excellence at the 2017 WHO Belfast Healthy City Awards. The Consumer Council’s access audits, are aimed at improving access to transport services for passengers with a disability or reduced mobility.
Scott Kennerley, Head of Transport at The Consumer Council, said: “A range of access audits have taken place across Northern Ireland, in all airports and ferry ports, and some train and bus stations. As a result of these audits changes have been made to improve passenger access, including better signage, improved seating, clearer walkways and tactile paving. We are delighted to have received this commendation at the Belfast Healthy City Awards.”
