TRANSPORT MINISTER  Humza Yousaf has been urged to ‘take action’ after disability groups claimed that the supply of taxis at Waverley Station, Edinburgh, was not good enough.

Robin Wickes, vice-chairman of the Edinburgh Access Panel, admitted that rank facilities at the station were not, ‘fit for purpose’ and that a suggestion for a recommended drop-off point for disabled people at the back of the station was inadequate.

Mr Wickes added:

Access for disabled cab users is very isolated and remote from the hubbub of the station and it is not a pleasant place to have to wait. We are though looking at the provision of electric buggies, to transport people from their point of entry to the station to the platform.

A spokesman for the transport minister said he had asked Network Rail to consider what more could be done.
