Improve Disability Access in Transport

If you are looking to improve disability access at your transport hub then a Changing Places toilet is the ideal solution. Many disabled people feel they can’t travel because of the lack of suitable toilets - help improve the lives of others whilst attracting new customers to your transport links.

Disability Access & Transport

Travel is difficult for people with severe disabilities, often because of the lack of suitable toilets. Regular disabled access toilets aren’t appropriate for a range of disabled people such as those who need more space or the help of others. As a disabled person, the transport network is difficult to navigate anyway but the situation would be improved with more Changing Places facilities.

Types of Transport Business

It is recommended that all major transport hubs have a Changing Places provision. For disabled customers, this would mean they could easily travel between destinations without the worry of when they will next be able to use the bathroom or be changed. Train stations, bus stations, airports and motorway service stations are all suitable candidates for a Changing Places toilet.

Train Stations

Invite more customers to use the rail networks and increase their independence by installing a Changing Places facility at your station.

Airport Terminals

1 in 6 of Europe’s population is disabled. Make your airport a top destination for travellers by providing better disability access.

Bus Stations

Boost the local economy by making your bus station accessible to even the most profoundly disabled.

Motorway Services

Encourage more visitors on car journeys to stop at your services by improving your toilet provisions for disabled people.

Did you know there are over 11 million people with a disability in the UK? Improving disability access in the transport network would give many of those people improved freedom as they would be able to travel further or even independently.

How Can the Transport Industry Benefit?

As an industry always trying to boost passenger numbers, public transport especially, could see that happen with improved disability access. There are many other ways businesses can benefit from installing a Changing Places toilet, including; a good reputation, customer loyalty, and an increase in profit margins. More Changing Places facilities in transport hubs is also good for entire towns and attractions as many more people would be able to travel to them.

Our Solution

iHUS specialise in the installation of modular Changing Places facilities and disability adaptions. We have experience working with transport industry clients and can offer extensive advice on ideal facility location and design.

Modular

Our pre-fabricated modular Changing Places units are manufactured at our site in South Yorkshire. They are then delivered directly to your location and installed by our expert team. This option minimises the amount of disruption at your end; ideal for the transport industry where things always need to run smoothly and stay operational. 

Adaptions

If you don’t have space for a modular facility then we’re able to adapt an existing space into a Changing Places toilet. This could be an unused space or existing toilet. If the space is large enough to meet the British Standard space recommendations, then we can adapt it into a hygienic, safe facility for your most vulnerable customers.

430,000 British adults with an impairment did not take a domestic trip in the last 12 months due to the lack of accessibility provision.
