Transport for All
Mobility significantly improves quality of life of deaf, disabled and older people through empowerment and independence. Transport for All fights for the fundamental right to travel, and its impact far outweighs its size – the organisation regularly meets with the Minister for Transport and the Managing Director of the London Underground, and sits on the City of London Transport Committee’s Board. Recent successful campaigns include step-free Crossrail stations, 120 discrimination cases and accessible redesign of lift signage across the Underground. Transport for All also runs the ‘Access, Rights, Advice’ telephone line that offers free travel information and support to its members. Additional safety requirements during Covid have made public transport in many areas even less accessible than before. Transport for All is using funding from The Fore to enable volunteer operators of its telephone line to work effectively remotely, and to recruit additional volunteers, enabling the service to support more people in need during the pandemic and beyond.
