This week’s Speed of Sound addressed something that is crucial to disabled people’s participation in sport: accessible public transport.

After a few pre-recorded words from TFL, we heard from Doug Paulley, who spoke to us a few months after his benchmark victory at the Supreme Court in the so-called “wheelchair VS buggy case”.

We also asked two more panellists: how can disabled passengers ensure they will be heard when they talk about their experiences- both good and bad- on public transport?
