Accessibility Guide to London During the 2012 Olympics & Paralympics

UNITED KINGDOM - No matter where the Olympics are being hosted, getting to and from venues or even around the city is a challenge for anyone, but for the disabled it can be especially daunting. That's why Transport for London has produced a new series of videos and updated online resources in preparation for the 2012 London Summer Olympics and 2012 Paralympics. From their main Transport Accessibility page you can find specific information regarding: bus, tube, rail, taxi, or river travel. As well there is Dial-A-Ride, London's free door-to-door wheelchair accessible minibus service for eligible members. For those visiting London and staying at an address in a London borough, you can apply for a temporary membership. Specific information regarding access and transport to Olympic venues for the disabled can be found here.
