How accessible is public transport?

Does reduced mobility make using public transport difficult for you?  Do you ever struggle to board Tubes, buses or trains or are you forced to make complicated journeys to get to a ‘step-free’ station?


If so, the London Assembly Transport Committee would like to hear from you.

We are examining the experience of people with reduced mobility on the capital’s transport network.  This includes people in wheelchairs, older people, and people with buggies and young children.


Our investigation will look at how accessible the network is at the moment - from journey planning through using each form of transport and the interchanges between them – and what improvements are needed. 


To help inform our investigation, please share your experiences of this issue with us, by email:; phone 020 7983 4206; or write to London Assembly Transport Committee, PP10, FREEPOST LON15799, City Hall, The Queen's Walk, London, SE1 2BR. 


We welcome views from people up until the end of September.  For more details about our investigation visit:

We look forward to hearing from you.
