You are viewing all of the services and organisations in the travel and getting about category. If you're looking for information about transport services and travelling locally, you're in the right place. You can find services to help you get around if you find it difficult. There are passes and permits, like the Freedom Pass that gives older and disabled people free travel on buses and the Blue Badge scheme that helps disabled drivers to park. 

You can also get help from services like the Taxi-Card scheme or Wandsworth Shopmobility. To help you plan a journey, you can find places that offer accessibility information, such as DisabledGo, and find journey planners here as well.
