At the moment, it is very complicated for people with disabilities
to travel by train.
In many countries, they need to call the train company
many days before they want to travel.
They need to tell them that they have a disability.
Then the train company makes sure that they get help.
For example, a ramp if they use a wheelchair.
Or a support person.
Because of this, many people with disabilities cannot travel
when they like.
Sometimes if they want to travel too early in the morning
they don’t even receive any help.
This is not fair.
Many people with disabilities
have to travel in other ways,
for example by using cars.
Some countries are doing much better than others.
One good example is the Netherlands.
When someone with a disability takes a train in the Netherlands,
they only need to call an hour in advance.
Not 2 days.
