From the ‘Leonard Cheshire’ Charity
People are creatures of habit, but we shouldn’t let this impact on other’s journeys.
Whether it’s bullish commuters charging through crowds at stations. Or passengers retreating into their shells when someone needs a priority seat. One in four disabled people say negative attitudes from other passengers prevent them from using public transport.
That’s why we’re supporting the “it’s everyone’s journey’ campaign” from the Department for Transport. The campaign encourages passengers to be more considerate of others, to make travelling more inclusive for everyone.
While passenger attitudes are only one of many barriers disabled people face, we hope this campaign will encourage people to slow down, offer their seats, and be more considerate of disabled passengers.
