Taxi Accessibility Survey

August 23rd, 2021

The National Transport Authority aims to improve Small Public Service Vehicle (SPSV – Taxi, Hackney and limousine) services for all, but particularly for people with disabilities who are using or might use this door-to-door transport service. They are currently seeking your experiences, opinions and advice on the demand for and accessibility levels of taxi, hackney and limousine services nationwide. You can take part in their Accessibility Survey below. The information obtained through this survey is crucial to future planning for improved service provision. As response rates have been very low, the survey completion deadline has been extended until Tuesday, 31 August 2021 and can be completed in the following ways:

  • Online, via the following link which is compatible with screen-readers: https://secure.bandasurvey.ie/WebProd/Start/Ba212691
  • By post: if you require a hard-copy version of the survey, please contact Behaviour & Attitudes on 01 2057561 or glenn@banda.ie . You will also receive a stamped addressed envelope to return your completed survey.
  • By telephone: please contact Behaviour and Attitudes at glenn@banda.ie or on 01 2057561. They will arrange for an agent to call you to go through the questions with you.
