8.1 No significant evidence emerged of pregnancy and maternity related discrimination in relation to transport usage. Issues relating to pregnancy and maternity were not raised in a 2006 user consultation exercise for the Scottish Government71. In 2011 and 2012, transporting baby prams and buggies on public transport featured in news media in Scotland72.
