Earlier today, Clive GilbertPolicy Connect’s Head of Accessible Transport, met Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, as he became the first metro mayor to sign the #AccessibleTransportCharter
Launched by ncat’s Accessible Transport Policy Commission in Parliament earlier this year, the #AccessibleTransportCharter commits local and regional political leaders to work to ensure that: 
– A disabled people’s champion is appointed to all key transport bodies. 
– Local transport authorities establish accessibility co-production panels. 
– Accessibility is integrated into public transport strategies. 
– Our streets are free of clutter and accessible to all.   
We thank Andy Street for his support and look forward to working with other current and prospective councillors and mayors committed to eliminating barriers to travel for disabled people.
