Train booking confusion deters disabled travellers, says charity

Disabled travellers are deterred from taking the train by poorly trained staff, confusion over booking requirements and inaccessible stations, according to a charity, which says targets to provide accessible trains could be rendered meaningless.

Only one in five train stations in England is fully accessible, research by the Papworth Trust found, while two-thirds of disabled people say the need to book assistance rather than turn up and go means they use trains less than they otherwise would.
