Disability discrimination on public transport
As if the lack of appropriate adjustments to public transport systems is not bad enough, it seems that insult is being added to injury in that many disabled people who manage to use the public transport system suffer abuse.
In a survey commissioned by scope, some pretty disturbing results were obtained, including :-
- Nearly 50% of people with disabilities advise that they have been abused by able bodied passengers
- 15% say they encounter serious abuse.
