The London mayor has kicked off 2020 with the promise of a ‘Companion Pass’ for those caring for people with disabilities: to be used on all buses, tubes and rail services. If it comes into force, the pass will be issued to the person in need of travel assistance so it could be used by family, friends or those providing professional support.
According to The Guardian, Khan said: ‘My job is to stand up for all Londoners. I want to ensure everyone in our city can access our fantastic transport network, and that travel in the capital is inclusive and affordable. The companion pass is intended to make a big difference to disabled Londoners. It will help them to move around our city more easily and take advantage of all the fantastic opportunities that London has to offer.’
