Stay Safe: Stay Connected

This week we’ll be talking about public transport in a post lockdown world. With a phased reopening of shops, school and many workplaces around the world, many of us will need to use public transport again over the coming months. Many blind and partially sighted people, however, are concerned we won’t be able to maintain social distancing when using the assistance services provided by transport operators.

On Friday, we’ll be joined by a representative from a major UK train operating company, as well as a Campaigns Officer from Guide Dogs for the Blind. Ben made an intercity train journey for work last week, and he’ll be sharing some audio with us, letting us know how he got on.

If you have any questions about your right to access assistance services on public transport in a socially distanced world, this is your opportunity to get them answered!
