Why TRAIN STATIONS NEED A PLATFORM LIFT
In the UK, there are more than 10 million people who live with a disability. If you don’t have a platform lift at your station, it may mean that passengers are unable to travel where they need to get to. Whether they need to change trains at your station or yours is their desired destination, it is unfair if they have to make additional arrangements. An accessible train station makes sense from a user’s perspective as well as a business point of view. Platform lifts for train stations don’t need to be big, fancy or cost a fortune, they simply need to be safe and practical.
