Last year we published the Inclusive Transport Strategy which sets out what we are doing to improve access across all transport modes. As part of this, we extended our Access for All programme with an additional £300m of funding. This provides accessibility improvements over and above those required by the rail industry itself. Stations are nominated by the rail industry bodies who can work alongside local authorities and Members of Parliament. Stations are selected for funding through a prioritisation and assessment process.

star this property answer text <p>It is for each local authority to decide whether to charge for a Blue Badge. There are no plans to abolish the Blue Badge fee which allows local authorities to recover some of the costs involved with issuing the badge and administering the Scheme. In England the maximum fee that can be charged is £10.</p><p> </p><p>On 30 August the scheme in England was extended to include people with non-visible disabilities or conditions which affect an individual’s mobility.</p> more like this
