Dear fellow passengers,
As COVID-19 restrictions ease, new measures are in place to keep us all safe on public transport. The return to transport also gives us a chance to think about how we travel.
By being more considerate of each other on public transport we can create a more inclusive environment, one that’s better for everyone.
One in five people in the UK are disabled, and many of us may face cognitive and physical challenges at different times in our lives.
We can help make everyone’s journey better by:
- Understanding that not everyone can wear a face covering, due to medical exemptions.
- Making space. Some people will rely on others to social distance on their behalf.
- Remembering that not all disability is visible.
- And above all, showing consideration for each other.
These small changes can make a world of difference.
If we all try to be there for each other, and are mindful and considerate when we travel, we can help get life back on track for everyone.
