At present approximately 950 bus stops on the TLRN (representing 38% of bus stops on the TLRN) still require some minor work to make them fully accessible (for example, work to raise kerb heights), although in reality most of these would still be accessible to most passengers, other than those with serious mobility problems. These works are forecast to cost approximately £3.8m. In the current Business Plan, there is a target to make 65% of all bus stops across the network accessible by 2017/18.
