Train stations "people with disabilities travel independently"



Independent travel is allowed to people with disabilities, many of the UK train stations do not take the step for free.

The study by Leonard Cheshire found that 40% of the country's 2,560 stations would not be used as a travel traveler.

Often there was no clear information on accessibility to organize travel planning and ramps to get people between the platform and the train.

Reports claim "disable disabled people to travel independently".

According to studies conducted by Leonard Cheshire, more than one third (35%) worked because the disabled people had problems last year because they did not use trains.

Charity chief executive Neil Heslop said: "Poor public transport prevents disablement, leaves others out of actions they give, employment opportunities and social events.

"People with disabilities can not survive. Rail operators must make an absolute priority in accessing their train station in order to travel as a way for all customers to choose."

Passengers who do not have an assistant at this time must have the necessary training, contact the train operator or through a long online process. Details are printed and given to station workers.

However, delays and cancellations may render this redundant information free of any assistance to people.

In order to make a mistake, it is developing a mobile phone application that facilitates the availability of rail travel assistance requirements and for people with disabilities.

The passenger support application will be held in Great Britain in the autumn next year.
