There’s an exhibition next month devoted to making London’s transport more accessible to people with disabilites, or of a certain age.

The event will highlight current and future innovations aimed at making it easier for everyone to get out and about in the Capital.

The day will feature a range of interactive exhibits and activities, including:

Life-size mock-ups of Tube and rail stations and street environments

Real buses, taxis, coaches and Dial-a-Ride vehicles

An innovation zone, including a bus which tells passengers when there are empty seats upstairs — which I have written about before.

A workshop where young people can swap tips on using public transport and discuss their experiences and priorities for the future

Seminars, discussion sessions and workshops.

The event takes place at the ExCeL center on Thur 2nd October, and is free to visit.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    … and the website says there will be “offers for free rides on the Emirates Air Line cable car”. Dangleway enthusiasts in the target audience will be suitably impressed !

    Accessibility on London’s buses would be much improved if the drivers pulled up to stops and into the kerb. Why is this perenial complaint not being addressed?
