Autism East Midlands has joined up with East Midlands Railway (EMR) to look at ways in which train travel could be made more autism friendly. Crowds, noises and lighting are a few of the environmental factors that can make train travel uncomfortable or even overwhelming for those with sensory needs or autism. EMR asked Autism East Midlands to carry out autism friendly environmental audits on their railway stations in the region, with the aim being to highlight potential stress triggers. Recommendations for small improvements have since been put forward.
