Disability Wales reports on access to taxis

Disability Wales has published the results of its recent survey on the problems facing disabled people in Wales who want to access taxis and private hire vehicles. 64% of those who responded to the online survey stated they had experienced problems.

Whilst many of the concerns related to wheelchair users, the issue of guide dog refusals was also raised, along with a general lack of disability awareness. Disability Wales is calling on local authorities, taxi and private hire vehicle companies to take stronger action to ensure that disabled people have equal access to taxi and private hire vehicles.

You can read the results on the Disability Wales website. BBC Wales also reported on the survey, and on wider transport issues facing disabled people, which you can read here.
