Research by Leonard Cheshire has found that 35 per cent of disabled people say they have experienced problems using trains in the last year.
Train journeys need to be accessible from end to end. That means people are able to get into the station, onto the train, off the train and out of the station the other side with ease.
Good quality, accessible public transport means that disabled people can live, learn and work independently as they choose.
Leonard Cheshire have launched a transport campaign to demand better train travel for disabled people.and are asking people sign this petition calling on the Secretary of State for Transport to improve train journeys for disabled people.
