Step-free Access

To complement improvements to the website interface and the growing demand for improved accessibility information within Journey Planner and API, we have started a comprehensive programme to audit and improve National Rail step-free access information for stations within London and the South East. The process is well underway, and allows planning of “step-free to platform” journeys using National Rail, Overground and TfL Rail within London, and to a wide number of stations within Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, Oxfordshire.Surrey and Sussex. Includes train -bus connections across London and the South East, unlocking a large number of through multi-modal accessible journeys. We are also auditing stations outside London to confirm which step-free journeys are available.

95% of bus stops in London are accessible to wheelchair users, however, we are now starting a project which labels the small number of inaccessible bus stops and removes them from Journey Planner and API solutions when “Full step-free access” is selected. We are progressing through on a borough-by-borough basis, and, so far, work has been completed for Barking & Dagenham and is underway for Barnet.
