Frequently Asked Questions

Membership at Transport for All is changing. Below are some questions which you may have for us. If your question is not included in the list then please do get in touch!

Why have you decided to introduce a membership fee?

At TfA we pride ourselves in using our limited resources to maximum effect. In doing so we have won significant improvements to the way transport services are planned, operated and run in London – from winning an accessible crossrail to providing essential disability equality training to transport staff. However there is still much more to do in our struggle to ensure that no disabled and older person in London ever has to limit their lives or become housebound because of unusable transport services.

Ensuring our members are kept at the heart of everything we do is central in achieving this dream.

As a grassroots charity we therefore now need to start charging for membership to cover the costs of running our membership scheme. Your fee will mean we can greatly improve how our membership system works. This includes membership processing and renewals as well as making sure we can keep in touch with those who are not on-line. Ultimately it means building a stronger and better connected organisation.

What do I get for the membership fee?

I recently joined for free, do I still need to pay for membership?

Yes please! As we are introducing a new system we are requesting all existing members to sign up to our new paid for membership system.

I recently donated to TfA do I still I need pay for membership?

As ever your charitable donation is gratefully appreciated and directly contributes towards our core work which includes running our advice and advocacy services.

However our membership system is separate to this and is about building a strong base of members who we can keep updated and involve in our activities. Your membership fees will assist us to keep our system running!

I really want to be a member but I can’t afford the £10 fee?

TfA set our £10 per year fee to cover the costs of running our membership system. However we do understand that for some people that may not be affordable. If this is the case we request that you get in touch with us: membership@transportforall.org.uk

I’ve paid for membership can I still donate?

Yes please we still need our members to donate to us to keep our organisation running
