Transport for All hear daily of the unacceptable treatment faced by so many Disabled and older travellers on our Railways. Whether it’s assistance failing to turn up, inaccessible platforms or a lack of accessible facilities on trains – what is clear that our railways are failing Disabled and older passengers.
Now to make matters worse Southern Rail have announced that they are withdrawing Turn-Up-and-Go assistance from 33 stations across their network.
This is a huge backwards step for accessibility.
So next week we’re taking the fight to Southern Rail, with an action demanding that they reverse this shameful decision.
We’ll meet at the Heeltap Bar on Borough High Street for a quick briefing, before marching to London Bridge station to protest. If you’d like any more information please contact Catherine on firstname.lastname@example.org.
