Accessible London – TfL Releases its data on London Underground Station Accessibility

The 2012 Games provide a useful opportunity to get people thinking about how accessible/inaccessible London is going to be in time for the games. So the release of TfL Data around the accessibility of stations is extremely timely. Collected by London Underground and represented in 17 different spreadsheets (currently being worked on for upload by Gareth Baker) they should contain just about everything you need to know about the current state of play (and no doubt if they don’t we will have lots of people helping us to round out the picture)

Here is a list of the individual datasets with brief description of what they contain.

  • 1. Station Access using alternative entrances
  • 2. Detailed information on barriers
  • 3. Detailed information on car parking accessibility
  • 4. Detailed information on London Underground entrances
  • 5. Detailed information on escalators in stations
  • 6. Detailed information on helppoints
  • 7. Detailed information on lifts
  • 8. Comments on issues by station by object (ramps, gates, display boards etc.)
  • 9. Information on multi-stair within stations
  • 10. Information on step free stations by step gap
  • 11. Detailed information on stairs
  • 12. Text information on all sub objects
  • 13. Questions asked of On Duty Supervisors re range of services and customer service approaches (hearing impaired, wheelchair access, alternative journey planning information etc.)
  • 14. Detailed information on Ticket Machines
  • 15. Detailed information on toilets
  • 16. Detailed information on ticket offices
  • 17. Information on accessible platforms

We hope to have all of the datasets loaded under one category London Underground Stations Accessibility by the end of this week, so check back then and have a look around.
