people, including Motability operations and policies as well as individual
vehicles provided or offered under the scheme. Posters may also discuss any
difficulties they have encountered or share their experiences regarding
other transport matters or solutions. All modes of transport for disabled
people are relevant to the group including issues arising from the use of
third party vehicles or public transport. Provision of wheelchairs and
special mobility aids (and their use) as part of publicly accessible
schemes is also a relevant topic.
