More priority seating for disabled people on all trains

Petition Details

I want more trains to have more priority seating for disabled people and to make priority seating areas have a link to the train manager for any issues if you travel alone this can be very difficult and frustrating

Additional Information

I struggle to find a priority seat on a train they are taken and there isn’t enough onboard. I have had to sit in toilets and on the floor. I am registered disabled. It causes me distress and alarm when there is no priority seating available and which they are mostly taken by people, who don’t move when you tell them you need that seat. People are rude and disrespectful towards you which causes anxiety, stress and upset.

This petition was rejected

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:

We can only accept petitions about things the Government or Parliament are directly responsible for.

Decisions about provision on trains of priority seats for disabled people are a matter for individual train operators, not the UK Government or Parliament.
