The Disabled Parents' Network (DPN) have told me that, despite being eligible for Dial-a-Ride, many of their London members do not use the service because of an apparent inability to accommodate their young children. This would appear to be due to a lack of availability of suitable car-seats for Dial-a-Ride vehicles. Further, when Dial-a-Ride offer to send an alternative taxi or private hire vehicle these are often unavailable, which therefore negates Dial-a-Ride as a transport option for this group of passengers. I understand that Dial-a-Ride informed DPN over a year ago that a possible suitable car-seat was being investigated but nothing has been heard since. Please outline what Dial-a-Ride is doing to accommodate parents of children aged a)under 12 months and b)over 12 months and their children?
