Hovertravel’s accessibility initiative, HoverCare, has been chosen by the UK Government as a case study to provide guidance on the new Inclusive Transport Leaders Scheme – which aims to improve transport for disabled people.

Neil Chapman, Managing Director of Hovertravel, said:

“We have been working with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency and the Department for Transport, explaining how we implemented our HoverCare initiative.

“To be highlighted as a case study and featured on the Government’s website demonstrates that HoverCare is a world-class, industry leading scheme which is changing the perception and reality of how accessible today’s transport can be.”

HoverCare is a service for any Hovertravel customer requiring assistance with their travel whether they have reduced mobility requirements or just need a little extra help with their journey.

The initiative has been recognised with finalist positions and commendations across several national awards schemes.
