Abstract

Engaging with the public in research projects is a valuable exercise. However, it is often neglected as it can be time consuming and difficult to find the relevant people to consult. The Transport Accessibility Rehabilitation Services Advisory Network (TARSAN) is a platform, both physical and virtual, for people to learn about and discuss transport, accessibility and rehabilitation research. TARSAN was created to ensure researchers could easily find and engage with members of the public to better inform the research. TARSAN also provides an easy method to ensure any solutions are fed back to, and discussed with, the people that need them.
