General Election 2024

The UK General Election on 4 July was a critical moment for our community. Share the For All manifesto with your MP.

Campaign Success!
Transport for All members contacted over 300 candidates in the run up to the General Election, telling them why accessible transport for disabled people must be a priority for the new Government.

Over half of those candidates replied to us, or offered their support, or met with us to discuss these important issues.

With a new Government in place, we’ll be following up with every single new MP to make sure they keep their commitments to change. Share the manifesto with your MP to demand equal transport rights.

Transport for All's Manifesto

We are proud to present the For All Manifesto, outlining our key demands for the new government. This manifesto was informed by over 500 disabled people who completed the Accessible Transport Survey in 2022, and was co-developed with our members through focus groups to ensure we are accurately representing our community.

The For All Manifesto focuses on six essential areas to improve transport accessibility for disabled people:

  • Fairer concessions: More financial support to make travel affordable.
  • Operators held to account: Ensuring transport operators and providers are held responsible for their services.
  • Reliable staffing: Appropriate staffing levels with comprehensive Disability Equality Training.
  • Accessible information: Accurate, accessible information about routes and facilities.
  • Lifeline services protected: Safeguarding essential transport services that disabled people rely on.
  • Listening and action: Meaningful consultation and involvement of disabled people in transport planning.

The For All Manifesto is endorsed by:
