Transport and access in South-East London


This blog will look at issues surrounding transport and access for people with disabilities in Greenwich and south-east London. It aims to highlight problems for disabled people when they use public transport. In doing so, not only will it help other people with disabilities avoid such problems, but also help to make non-disabled people aware of the problems and dilemmas we face. As a Londoner who loves exploring this vast city, I use public transport regularly; I often come up against problems. They have become so regular, in fact, that I have almost stopped consciously noticing them. Yet this cannot continue: only by highlighting such problems, by drawing others' attention to them, can they be resolved.
