The Accessible Travel Open Day lasts from 11am to 3pm and will showcase everything we’re doing to make travelling in London accessible for all.

On the day you can take a guided tour of the station to find out how it caters for disabled people while also learning about the history of the Tube. Tours take place at midday, 1pm and 2pm and last 40 minutes. A British Sign Language interpreter will be available.

Chat to TfL’s accessibility managers to find out what we are doing to make the network step-free (we’re making 30 more stations step-free by 2022), and see how buses, trams and taxis are being made more accessible.

Also on-hand will be staff from the DLR’s ‘Back on Track’ scheme, which helps support people with a variety of conditions – such as claustrophobia, anxiety or depression – gain the confidence to use public transport.

While you’re there, don’t miss the chance to learn about the accessibility features of the new Elizabeth line (being built by Crossrail Ltd), which will start running in December next year.

The Accessible Travel Open Day runs from 11am to 3pm on Saturday 28 October at Stratford station.

Find out more about our efforts to make travelling in London as accessible as possible including guides and maps, door-to-door transport services and more.
