Journey-making focus group!

RNIB, Guide Dogs and London Vision Journey-Making focus group

RNIB, Guide Dogs and London Vision: Journey-Making focus group!

RNIB, London Vision and Guide Dogs Campaigns are holding a focus group on journey-making and getting around. The purpose of the travel focus group is for us to discuss some of the barriers which blind and partially sighted people encounter when travelling around. The personal experiences we discuss will be used to help us to explain the issues to policy- and decision-makers, so they better understand the importance of making streets and transport more accessible.

Event Details

The focus group will be taking place on 29 November from 10 am to 1 pm at RNIB 105 Judd Street, WC1H 9NE. Please email Karishma.shah@rnib.org.uk to RSVP.

Is this travel focus group something you would like to take part in?

We want to hear from you if:

  • You are blind or partially sighted,
  • You are able to travel independently, but feel frustrated by the barriers that prevent you from making all the journeys you want to without assistance,
  • You are affected by some of the topic areas covered below,
  • You are happy to share your personal experiences of journey-making with us and more widely to help us to campaign for change.

At the focus group, some of the key topic areas we aim to cover include:

  1. Kerbs (Detectable Footways, Cycleways and Roads);
  2. Shared Use Areas and Pathways;
  3. Shared Space;
  4. Cycling and Cycleways;
  5. Hybrid and Electric Vehicles and EV Charging Points;
  6. Access to Bus Stops (Bus Stop Bypasses and Bus Stop Borders);
  7. Dockless Bikes and pavement obstructions
  8. E-bikes,
  9. Micro-mobility (e-scooters, e-skateboards, hoverboards, Segways, go-peds),
  10. Underground access.
  11. Access to taxis
