Marking the International Day of Persons with Disabilities on 3 December, Caroline Pidgeon said:
"On International Day of Persons with Disabilities let's all recommit and work to reduce the barriers faced by people with disabilities.
"For example, much of our transport network remains inaccessible. I'll continue to work for a more accessible network, including more step-free access stations and continue my work with RNIB and others to ensure every station platform has tactile paving.
"We've also seen a steady rise in hate crime against disabled people, with a shocking 25% rise in London in the last year alone. We need a crackdown on this, making clear that it will not be tolerated."
