More details from petition creator

Woking Borough Council has a policy which would do away with a mixed fleet of both wheelchair-accessible vehicles and saloon cars.

The proposed Wheelchair-accessible taxis are not necessarily disability-friendly. People with arthritis, multiple sclerosis, fractured limbs and elderly people etc. cannot get in or sit down in the taxi, or, can do so only with extreme discomfort. We need a taxi fleet which caters to everyones’ needs and is truly inclusive.

Environmentally as well, this is a poor policy. This policy runs contrary to the council’s recent declaration of a climate emergency, as wheelchair-accessible vehicles are much more polluting.

From a safety point of view the proposed vehicles are less safe in instances.

The high cost of purchasing, running costs and maintaining these vehicles would impact drivers’ livelihoods and will have a negative effect on the Hackney trade overall.
