Caroline Pidgeon has welcomed news that a blue badge scheme for people less able to stand on public transport will be introduced on a permanent basis in the Spring.

Caroline, Chair of the London Assembly's Transport Committee, said

This is a small but really practical initiative that has greatly helped many people with hidden disabilities and medical conditions.

The scheme is a good example of TfL listening to the needs of passengers and then meeting them. I hope 2017 will see many more examples by TfL.”
