How everyone can make a difference

If everyone using public transport takes steps to be more mindful of fellow passengers, we can make a big difference together.

Passengers around us may need a seat, a bit of space getting on the carriage, patience at the ticket barriers or to be offered help when things go wrong. Staff and transport operators have a role to play too but if we all do our bit we can have a huge impact on the journeys of other people.

A public awareness campaign is being developed for all passengers for 2020. Sign up to our newsletter to find out more.

Help us raise awareness of the needs of disabled passengers by sharing case studies and positive stories which demonstrate the simple actions everyone can take to make a real difference.
