An open letter from the Department for Transport and a coalition including charities and ‘influencers’ is calling on people to “be an ally to disabled people on public transport”.
The ‘it’s everyone’s journey’ campaign follows DfT research showing that one of the greatest barriers to using public transport among disabled passengers is other people. One in four feel that other passengers are not considerate of those around them.
Signatories include the Royal National Institute of Blind People, the National Autistic Society and the Alzheimer’s Society, as well as various transport operators.
