Discussions about how to make public transport more accessible will take place at QEF Mobility Services on 6 October, with representatives from the Department for Transport and Transport for London in attendance to discuss proposals for increasing accessibility and to hear feedback from people with disabilities.
The aim of the day is to help and inform people with disabilities, their families, carers and therapists as well as understand what improvements they want from transport services.
Graham Race an engineer with expertise in transport and mobility issues from QEF Tryb4uFly will also be hosting a discussion about how people with disabilities can more easily access air travel, the steps they can take to prepare in advance and the information they need to give the airlines to get the support they need.
He said: “We’re committed to helping people with disabilities break through the barriers they experience when travelling and I’m very pleased to welcome the DFT and TFL to help us with this mission, and to hear their plans for improving accessibility for travel in London and across the country.”
