Transport policy

Working out how to get to Autscape, buying tickets and organising your journey is your own responsibility. We do our best to provide some basic advice and information on transport options to help people coming to the conference because we understand that many autistics find this challenging. But this information is provided by volunteers who are also autistic and are working hard to organise the Autscape conference. So if you need a lot of support to plan and arrange your particular journey, you need to get that support from family, friends or other support people. The responsibility for making sure that you actually arrive safely at Autscape is yours.
