Site accessibility

We want everyone who visits transportnsw.info to find the information they need, quickly and easily.

If you are looking for information about accessible public transport see accessible travel in NSW.

To ensure this site meets accessibility standards, we carry out user-testing with a wide range of people, covering varied accessibility needs (mobile, cognitive, auditory and visual) and this helps us to improve the user-experience for everyone.

We test on assistive devices and software such as screen readers and magnifiers.

We also regularly test our website on a variety of popular tablets and mobile devices.
