An action group campaigning for accessible public transport is meeting in Ilford today (Wednesday).

The Redbridge Transport Action Group is inviting fellow older and disabled transport users to go and share their experiences.

The session will focus on Sick of Waiting, the campaign for minimum standards in patient transport contracts.

The group will also be updating people on their ongoing campaign for stepfree Crossrail access at Seven Kings and across the line.

The meeting takes place at Redbridge CVS between 1pm and 3pm this afternoon. Refreshments will be provided.

Contact Transport for All on 020 7737 2339 if you would like to attend.
