How Accessible is London's Public Transport?

Posted in General News on Monday, November 18th, 2019

The London Assembly Transport Committee is conducting a consultation to examine accessibility and inclusion across the city’s public transport network and streets. The committee is aware of how important it is that everyone is able to make successful journeys to and from work, places of education, and leisure activities across London. This is why they have launched a consultation to find out what difficulties disabled people can face when they are trying to navigate their way through the city. The investigation will cover every type of public transport available in London including the tube, trains, buses, trams, DLR, River bus journeys, taxis and private hire vehicles (PHVs). By taking this approach the committee is looking to gain a better understanding of peoples’ “whole Journey”.  The committee is keen to receive responses from individuals and organisations regarding the main barriers that prevent disabled people from using London’s streets and public transport and the impact that this has on their lives.

This consultation closes on 17th January 2020 and if you would like to submit a response you can do so by visiting https://www.london.gov.uk/about-us/london-assembly/london-assemblys-current-investigations/accessible-and-inclusive-transport-0.
