train accessibility for disabled passengers
Well, as I commute from Leicester to Birmingham most days, I have noticed a problem with the accessibility of trains for disabled people. The gap in between the train and the platform confronts the wheelchair user with a real problem, i.e. it is too large for the passenger to traverse over. This topic has been in the news headlines a lot over the past few days and I think that firms should make arrangements so that disabled people do not have to feel they are out of place. What the train operators could do is modify the opening mechanism of the train doors so that there is a built in ramp, which opens and provides access to the people.
