A parliamentary Bill backed by Stockport’s MP to improve the travel experience of millions of people will have its recommendations implemented by the Government.

Navendu Mishra MP was one of the original sponsors of the Disabled Passengers Charter, presented in a Private Member’s Bill by Charlotte Nichols MP last year, which set out a range of suggested improvements and measures for greater accessibility for all those using buses, coaches, taxis, private hire vehicles and trains.

Mr Mishra said: 

“I’m delighted that the Government has agreed to implement the recommendations of the Disabled Passengers Charter and improve the journey experience for millions of people across the country, enabling them to travel more easily and more confidently.

“In addition to enforcing existing rights, the Bill also includes an accessibility audit of all rail stations to identify areas for improvement.

“There are more than 14 million people living in the UK with a disability and this is a step towards a more inclusive public transport network.”
