This is a campaign by AgeUK.
As part of Age UK London’s work to make London an Age Friendly City we are looking at transport issues across the capital – can you help us with two queries?
Firstly, we’d like to hear about any tube, rail or bus stations/journeys that might cause you difficulties – this can be anything from signage, to staff (e.g. drivers or station staff), to step-free access, inaccessible toilets or even routes not going where you need to get to!
Secondly, do you use:
- Community transport buses (e.g. mini buses run by local community organisations)
If so, we’d like to hear about your experiences of these – good and bad.
Please email with your thoughts by Friday 12th July and let us know if you are a member of a local Older People’s Forum or other community group. We’re really keen to campaign with as many people as possible to make London a genuinely Age-friendly City and ensure our campaigns are based in real experience. We would love as much feedback as possible to create our new Age-friendly London transport campaign so don’t hold back!
We will then send future email updates to explain how the new transport campaign will be taking shape as a result of your feedback and sharing different opportunities to get involved.
Making London Age-friendly is much more than just improving transport and we are looking for people to join the Age-friendly London movement to campaign on a range of different issues. If you are interested in campaigning to build an Age-friendly London, either by sharing your experiences, taking part in events or meeting decision-makers to call for change, please let us know in your reply.
Many thanks for your help!
