Time it takes to load a wheelchair user - Adapted Taxi

Share this page:

report broken link

This short film has been made to highlight Private Hire Drivers and Operators overcharging wheelchair passengers in Bradford and Districts. Some operators are charging more than 100% of the actual amount. This seems to be a national issue affecting many wheelchair users across the country. This is illegal under The Equality Act 2010 section 165, which imposes duties and states clearly with-in the legislation that assistance must be provided and can not be charged for. However drivers are charging extra for assisting. We, People First Keighley & Craven are a self-advocacy group run by people with Learning Disabilities for people with Learning Disabilities, and have been campaigning to stop this overcharging issue since 2011. If you have been affected by this please contact Tom Walsh and Omar Sardar on our email address:
