Do you use a wheelchair when travelling by rail? Rica wants to hear your views and experiences

Rica is working with Integrated Transport Planning Ltd (ITP) on a project for the Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB), looking at wheelchair user safety on train platforms.

Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB) has appointed Integrated Transport Planning Ltd (ITP) to undertake research to explore the attitudes and views of wheelchair users in relation to the unexpected movement of wheelchairs on rail station platforms. The research will be used to develop guidance for passengers, rail staff and managers on the measures to prevent unexpected movement in the future.

Research aims to:

  • Understand the experiences of wheelchair users who currently travel by train.
  • Find out whether wheelchair users have experienced unexpected movement of their wheelchair on a station platform.
  • Explore what could help prevent these incidents.

Your views are very important, if you would like your views heard please take a few minutes to complete the survey below. Closing date 18 June.
