Shaping the future of accessible transport

About the National Centre for Accessible Transport

The National Centre for Accessible Transport (NCAT) aims to make future modes of transport accessible for all. Through user-centred development processes and innovative co-designed solutions underpinned by applied research, the centre strives to ensure that all future travel systems have accessibility for disabled people at the heart of their development and delivery.

NCAT will work directly with disabled people, disability organisations, transport providers and policy makers to undertake research and develop solutions; amplifying the voices of disabled people in all decision making and collaborating widely with all transport stakeholders; and demonstrating good practice and impact to influence policy.


Working towards better

Funded by Motability, the charity, NCAT is led by Professor Paul Herriotts, based at Coventry University’s National Transport Design Centre (NTDC), alongside a number of organisations that form a specialist consortium, including Connected Places Catapult, Designability, Policy Connect, Research Institute for Disabled Consumers, and WSP UK.
