Accessibility and Public Transport Research at UCL

Accessibility and Community-CEntred Public Transport (ACCEPT)




This work investigated the possibilities thrown up by making public transport systems really accessible. Small networks, using small accessible vehicles on a high frequency service could offer an easy-to-use alternative to the private car for local trips. Interchange with the conventional public transport system would then facilitate longer trips. This has implications for ownership, regulation, competition and so on which will be investigated in this project. ACCEPT examines this issue in both urban and rural areas, using the case of Powys County Council as an example.
