SFTC: The Step-Free Tube Challenge

Added: 12 December 2019 | Updated: 12 December 2019

How quickly can we visit all step-free tube stations, in a wheelchair?

The Step-Free Tube Challenge on December 3rd, 2019, put this challenge to the test! Dr Jon Rey-Hastie, CEO of DMD Pathfinders and Alan Benson, Chair of Transport for All, share a common goal, to see transport transformed by removing access barriers for disabled people. The step-free tube challenge was an effort to raise awareness of the daily challenges faced by wheelchair users on the tube as well as the showcasing what can be done when access barriers are removed. The final, combined time was 21 hours and 23 minutes and we raised over £700 towards developing a London Travel Guide for disabled people. Keep up to date on twitter @stepfreetube
