Action for Rail - disabled & older passengers

Action for Rail - disabled & older passengers

Wednesday 24 April 2013 at 13:30-15:30

actionforrailapril2013Meeting for MPs and campaigners, with government and shadow transport representatives organised by Action for Rail.

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE OF RAILWAY STAFFING MEAN FOR DISABLED AND OLDER PASSENGERS?

24 April, 1.30pm–3.30pm, Grimond Room, Portcullis House, London.

The government and rail industry’s plans to find savings of up to £3.5bn will place up to 20,000 jobs at risk and entail the de-staffing of a large proportion of our trains and stations. Disabled passengers may suffer as a result.

Speakers from Transport for All, the National Pensioners Convention, Disabled People Against Cuts, rail unions and others will be invited to discuss their experiences of rail travel and the role that staff play in meeting their needs and to raise their concerns with MPs and government representatives.
