Answered By:

My aim is to make London a fairer city that is open and accessible to all. London's transport infrastructure is key to this, which is why I will do all I can to make our city more accessible to people with disabilities, including those who use wheelchairs.

Taxi and private hire vehicles can clearly play a vital role and I will ask TfL to look at ways we can increase the number of accessible vehicles used by the private hire industry.
