Have your say about London Transport

The London Assembly Transport Committee has launched an investigation into accessibility and inclusion across London’s transport network and streets, to help make improvements, to raise awareness of and lift the barriers and challenges that keep many from moving around the capital comfortably and confidently.

On Wednesday 8 January 2020, AbilityNet contributed to discussions with the London Assembly Transport Committee, alongside other charities and organisations. Focus was on the committee's efforts to embed and improve inclusive design practices, and the role of technology and innovation in improving accessibility and inclusivity of London’s transport network.

You can now view a recording of the session via YouTube.

You are invited to share your feedback on any accessibility issues with London's public transport to the committee by the deadline of Friday, 17 January 2020, using the details below.
