This information sheet presents some of the interim findings of the life opportunities survey regarding the different modes of transport that adults use. It also explores the modes of transport they were not able to use as much as they would have liked and the main barriers to using them. The survey found that disabled adults were less likely to use all modes of transport as much as they would like to when compared with non-disabled adults. This was particularly marked for some modes of transport, notably local trains, the underground, long distance trains and motor vehicles. The most common barrier experienced by all adults using all modes of transport was cost. This was experienced fairly equally by adults with and without impairments.
