TfL has already planned to undertake detailed research, as part of its Assisted Mystery Traveller Survey, to greater understand disabled passengers experiences using private hire services. Over the course of the next year, TfL will work with a number of disability charities to understand the differing needs of passengers with a view to implementing additional disability requirements and developing incentives as appropriate. TfL will work with the private hire trade to explore possible incentives which could include a recognition scheme for those operators that provide accessible vehicles.
