2016 has been quite a year! Transport for All has continued to tirelessly work to win the improvements and changes we need in our transport system that will enable all Disabled and older Londoners to live, work and play in a city that is accessible to all.
The Mayor of London’s announcement to invest £200 million into Tube accessibility is for us a victory. This include making 30 more Tube stations accessible and so bringing the total to 100 out of 270. This progress represents a decade of campaigning and we could not have done it without our members and donors.
To celebrate the end of the year we created a little presentation with the highlights of 2016 (Click here for the text only version).
– But there is so much more to do in 2017 –
Every day Disabled and older people have their lives restricted (or even become housebound) because transport services fail them. Wheelchair and mobility scooter users are routinely refused access to buses and the Tube; Assistance dog users are illegally charged more by some minicab drivers; Dial-A-Ride still won’t go further than five miles.
Let’s change this, so that Disabled and older people can visit family and friends and live their lives without worrying about how to get around.
