Wheelchair users in UK to be given enhanced rights for bus travel

Owen Bowcott has reported that wheelchair users on buses are to be given more rights, following a supreme court decision. This may include clearer signs giving wheelchair users priority and powers for drivers to remove people who refuse to move from a wheelchair space. The government has accepted in principle the recommendations of a review group of the judgement.

With LEPs now responsible for significant amounts of local transport funding decisions, the Transport Knowledge Hub is a timely new tool for local decision makers. At the LEP Network, we know the huge value of giving LEPs a forum to share best practice and engage with other stakeholders, so we are delighted to be involved with a transport-specific project which supports spending decisions that make a genuine difference.

Warren Ralls, Director, LEP Network
