In a statement on the New Bus for London, Transport for All - who were involved in the consultation on the design of the bus - said:
“The New Bus for London is a missed opportunity for a bus that works for all Londoners, including wheelchair and pushchair users.
TfL could have been so much more ambitious, and created a new bus as a beacon of accessibility and inclusion. Instead, TfL have put swish design over the needs of disabled Londoners.
At a time when TfL are scaling back the stepfree station programme because of ‘budgetary constraints’, it is obscene that £11.37m is being spent on a bus which does not serve the needs of disabled Londoners."
