Accessible public transport
Making Nottingham's public transport system as accessible as possible, including wheelchair accessible buses, dial-a-ride, community transport and shopmobility services
Easy on, easy off
Nottingham City Council believes that public transport should be accessible to all.
Nottingham City Council together with the bus and tram operators have implemented a range of measures to meet the specific needs of passengers with disabilities.
This page will help you make the best use of local transport and give you useful contacts to make your journey easier.
Making life easier
The City Council has an ongoing program of improving local bus stops to make life easier for people with disabilities. To date over 600 stops now have shelters with lighting which improves both the comfort and safety of waiting for a bus. Around half of all stops have raised kerbs meaning that there is no step for passengers boarding the bus.
If you are unable to use conventional bus services, Dial-a-Ride is a door to door service provided by Nottingham Community Transport.
