It's time

Buses and trains in England and Wales are starting to bear posters referencing the Time to Get Equal initiative. The posters aim to show how people with disabilities are discriminated against when it comes to public transportation. The campaign is being driven by Scope, a UK disability advocacy group. Scope chief executive Tony Manwaring said: "Disabled people will not achieve equality until they are able to travel freely. Our campaign graphically depicts the discrimination disabled people face on public transport. That `disable-ism' exists is shocking, but I'm heartened there are transport providers who know more needs to be done and want to work with Scope and disabled travellers to achieve genuine equality."
