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
"As someone who has long supported this scheme being introduced as a trial, I very much welcome it now being permanently rolled out across London.
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.”
