Rail network to step up disabled-friendly travel

London Midland Rail is encouraging more disabled travellers to use its services after launching a campaign to highlight its commitment to making rail travel simpler for everyone.

Their calls come as new research shows 24 percent of disabled passengers don't feel their journeys are easy enough.Since 2007, London Midland has been providing train services from London to Birmingham.

Nick Goss is a wheel chair user who chairs London Midland’s Access Advisory Panel, he said:

“Trains provide an incredibly good option for a wide range of disabled people. It’s about planning where you want to go, what you want to do and really working in partnership with the train operating companies to tell them what you need so they can provide the right assistance, in the right way at the right time.”
