First Bus Win Appeal Against Disabled Discrimination Court Judgement
December 9th 2014
First bus has won their appeal against the courts’ decision to allow wheelchair users to demand removal of pushchairs from the designated disabled areas.
This comes after Yorkshire man – Doug Paulley won a court ruling, claiming that the company’s wheelchair policy was discriminatory. Mr Paulley had attempted to board the bus, but was told to wait for another one, when the woman with a pushchair refused to move out of the designated wheelchair space.
The county court judge claimed that the firm was in breach of the Equality Act 2010, and so Mr Paulley was compensated £5,500.
First Bus say the policy is that wheelchair users have the right to ‘request’ non-disabled people to vacate the space, but they are not ‘required’ to do so. They also say that this has been an ongoing problem on public transport that has had repeated conflicting court decisions.
Public transport operators have been looking for legal clarity regarding this issue, and the recent ruling is that people are not required to make space for wheelchair users, although they should consider it greatly and only use the wheelchair space when there are no other options.
Mr Paulleys lawyers are already planning an appeal to the Supreme Courts regarding the revised decision on an issue that is of great importance to many disabled people.
Judges at the Court of Appeal say that the proper solution for disabled people to gain improvements is to take it up with parliament, not the court.
