Trains are a mode of transport that many blind and partially sighted people rely on. It's essential staff at stations are well trained, signage is designed to be accessible and audio announcements remain in place.
We often compile surveys to help inform train companies what elements can really improve journeys for blind and partially sighted people.
As you may be aware, the Government is currently deciding who will run the rail service covering the East of England. It is currently run by Abellio Greater Anglia, who have the contract until October 2016. We conducted a survey which almost 50 people responded to, with specific feedback on the positive and negative elements of the service. We will share your comments with the train providers concerned.
Transport is a lifeline for blind and partially sighted people across the country in order to lead independent and fulfilled lives. We want all modes of transport to be fully accessible for blind and partially sighted passengers.Find out what we're doing on our Transport campaign
