Transport Design decision-making

What the project is about?

We are keen to find out how transport design decisions are made, particularly why do ‘bad decisions’ get made, again and again, and how can we support ‘good’ decision-making in the future.

What it seeks to do?

This project will engage with transport design stakeholders to better understand the design processes they work to. Analysis of these working practices will enable us to propose an exemplar process that guarantees good outcomes for disabled people in the design of future transport systems.

How it seeks to do it?

The project will identify and engage with design professionals through one to one interviews and other established research methods. Co-creation activities will be undertaken to generate new working processes.

What we’ve done so far

The initial survey has been completed and the responses from it have been evaluated. Themes will be shared and translated into recommendations soon. For greater depth of understanding interviews are ongoing which might lead to additional recommendations.
