The event aims to bring people together to discuss the positives and negatives of public transport and Erica Ward, Accessibility Officer at West Yorkshire Combined Authority (METRO) will be our main speaker along with representatives from the public transport providers in the district.
At the event, there will also be the first ever “Transport Equality Achievement (T.E.A) Award”, which will be an award for the bus driver, taxi driver or support worker who enables you to use public transport and provide equality to all citizens.
The Bradford & District Disabled People’s Forum (BDPF) & People First Keighley and Craven (PFKC) have jointly complied a survey, which we would like to ask you to complete and tell us about your experiences of using public transport as well as nominating your “Public Transport Hero”.
