Transport for London should add Thameslink to its Tube map because the latter is fully accessible to all passengers.
That’s the recommendation from the London Assembly Transport Committee, following the publication of a report stating that travel for disabled and older people is a lot harder across the capital owing to barriers in the existing system. These include inconsistencies in accessibility features and services provided across various transport modes.
The committee believes that adding Thameslink to the Tube map will raise awareness of the service, as well as opening up a significant part of the network for all.
Caroline Pidgeon MBE, acting chairman of the Transport Committee, said: “A simple move such as TfL putting the fully accessible Thameslink service on the Tube map is a quick win that would highlight a service that not many people know about.”
