I live and work in London and with my acting, work in disability and leadership, I travel a lot. I like the overground trains in London the best – they’re spacious and very accessible in terms of having live information written on screens as well as voiced over.
Of course, trains can frustrate me. When there are delays, the information is only relayed by microphone and that means that because I am deaf I have to ask someone to pass on that information or suffer in silence.
I also like the tube because it is fast and the information is really clear and easy to use. I do think it can be made much more accessible though, particularly for wheelchair users. Still, public transport is getting there. Radar’s Doing Transport Differently will help all of us to get there too.
