Me getting out of an accessible taxi

Me getting out of an accessible taxiI was recently interviewed by ITV Border News, about the public transport lottery in Kendal for disabled people.

It’s a real struggle for disabled people to get around in this area. Taxis often aren’t an option – the numbers of accessible cabs in Cumbria are very limited, with many contracted to day centres and only available between 10am and 4pm.

You will notice that Gary from G&A Taxis says that there aren’t accessible vehicles around at night because there is no demand for them. I need your help in proving that there is a demand, so that we can appeal to taxi companies to extend and improve accessible services.
