Can anyone tell me if the buses in UK, especially in London, are wheelchair accessible such as the one in US? I.e. in North California, most of the bus have built-in under-carriage elevator to lift up the wheelchair.
As a mom with a child still in a stroller, I'm glad to learn that London busses are all wheelchair accesible--the underground is not completely. Next time I go in, I'll try using the bus a bit.
Outside London, it's going to vary a lot. Check before you travel. Not just a general call to the bus company where you are going, ask about the specific route.
We just moved out from a town which was mostly accessible busses, at least on my routes, to a village which is not served by accessible busses. Nor is our train station accesible. I've recently learned from another mum that she usually stays on the train and gets out at the NEXT village, pushes the stroller down the ramp, across the tracks, up the ramp and takes the next train back into our village in order to get off on the street side of the station. (the other side is against a hill, so stairs either over the tracks or up the hill to the road). Sounds a bit troublesome but I'll have to try it soon. And go to the town planning meetings and insist the station be brought up to date for the sake of wheelchair users and mums.
