Transport for London will consult with a range of organisations about the trial of this technology, including those representing blind and partially sighted Londoners. TfL recently met with representatives from Guides Dog for the Blind to discuss the trial and will continue to engage with all stakeholders to ensure that the needs of all Londoners are considered during the trial.
