What’s the future of accessible transport in London?
A few weeks ago, Greenford Tube station became step free thanks to an innovative incline lift. And from wheelchair accessible escalators in Japan to information screens with sign language interpreters in French railway stations, we often hear of exciting access technology from TfA members on their travels.
Could such technologies be applied in London? What might the next generation of bus and tube look like? What might the next twenty years bring for older and disabled transport users?
Join us to put your questions and ideas on transport innovation to representatives from TfL.
When: Tuesday 8th December 2015, 13.30 – 17.30
Where: Weare336, 336 Brixton road, SW9 7AA, London
The event brings together representatives from London’s disability sector to discuss local and London wide transport issues. You will have the occasion to share issues your beneficiaries may encounter. We’ll also listen to TfA’s members on campaigns and actions from around London.
Would you or someone from your organisation be interested in representing your borough at this Forum?
Eligibility to join
You must be a representative of a disabled or older persons organisation, mobility forum member or community transport provider in London. Places are very limited! We therefore restrict registration to one person per organisation. We always hope to see all boroughs of London represented during this event.
If you require British Sign Language interpreters or have other access or communication requirements, please let us know before the 7th September 2015. Note: We will try to meet all access requests, but cannot guarantee provision if made after this deadline.
