Disabled teenager left distraught after ScotRail employee refuses to set up ramp for him to board train

Disabled teenager left distraught after ScotRail employee refuses to set up ramp for him to board train | Accessible Travel | Scoop.it
NINO ZAVARONI, who suffers from cerebral palsy, was stunned when the ScotRail worker refused to set up the ramp for him - despite standing right next to one.
Brian Seaman's insight:

In my opinion there needs to be some flexibility on the 24 hours notice, especially when circumstances do not give a disabled passenger the opportunity to book assistance in advance.
