Why is the Sydney Alliance working on this?

Answer

The Sydney Alliance is working on this issue as train station accessibility is an essential part of

ensuring that everyone has access to public transport. Currently many stations across the network

are not accessible, meaning that various groups of people have difficulty accessing stations due to

the absence of lifts and the necessity of negotiating flights of stairs.

Those who face access difficulties include wheelchair users, parents with prams, people with injuries

or disabilities which limit movement, older people, and people with luggage, among others. This

incorporates a large section of the population and thus has a broad impact on equality of access to

public transport.
