Transport is an area where inequalities in access and provision for different sectors of society can have significant effects. It is the glue that binds so many different activities for us all and if equal access to transport is not available then it can lead to a range of other manifestations of inequality.
In line with its Public Sector Equalities Duties, Nestrans has produced an Equalities Mainstreaming Report and Outcome Report to ensure that equalities issues are fully addressed.
