Share your transport experiences - Workshops for disabled people

DPA, together with transport consultancy MRCagney, are conducting research on behalf of Waka Kotahi, NZ Transport Agency, titled 'Understanding the transport experiences of disabled people, determining what barriers exist for people wanting to use Total Mobility and exploring new opportunities'.

This work involves collecting transport experiences from disabled people from all around New Zealand.

We have a series of workshops planned starting at the end of April and running until mid-June. We will update this page with links to registration pages as registration opens for workshops around the country.

If you require financial assistance with transport costs to attend a workshop, please get in touch - paul.brown@dpa.org.nz
