Mobility Aid Card Launched

People who use mobility aids such as wheelchairs, mobility walkers and scooters could benefit from a new card to help them travel more freely on public transport.

Transport for London’s (TFL’s) Mobility Aid recognition card will identify which mobility aids can be safely used on the capital’s buses.

TFL hopes the card will remove confusion from passengers and bus drivers over which can be taken onto a bus, giving people more confidence when travelling. Just under 90 models scooter have already been approved.

To apply for a card  call 020 3054 4361 or email
