Accessibility of Princess Square to the Public
Princes Square is a place for customers to relax, enjoy and socialize with friends such as shopping and a variety of restaurants.
Transport & Parking
There is no disabled parking outside the princes square shopping center in which the customers would have a long distance to walk up to Buchanan galleries car park or st Enoch.
The main entrances to Princes Square through the three level access points are accessible in which there are escalators, lifts and flat surfaces. However due to my past experiences of being in princes square the lifts and escalators have been out of order at several points during the day. For example lunch time rush hour limiting ways of getting to each level . On the top floors of Princes Square all the restaurants are very close together and the seats and tables are quite cluttered leaving minimal space for additional equipment such as wheelchairs.
The main disabled toilets are on the ground floor so if the lifts and escalators were not accessible it would hinder the customer getting to the toilet. This is because they would have to take the stairs which would take longer and more energy consuming.
The staff and security guards are helpful and efficient in terms of walking round each level, checking customers are getting where they want to be within the shopping center.
