James Davies of Mt Clare­mont says he wants a wheel­chair ac­ces­si­ble ride-share app in Perth to use in­ac­tive dis­abil­ity vans, in­crease com­pe­ti­tion and make the sys­tem fairer on driv­ers and con­sumers.

The sys­tem needs to im­prove. Mr Davies sounds like an amaz­ing man, who is stuck in an op­pres­sive trans­port sys­tem.

- Ge­orge O Dear James, I un­der­stand due to dis­abil­ity you feel un­safe while trav­el­ling. Had you writ­ten the num­ber of in­ci­dents you tripped over in a taxi and in­jured your­self, it would have more ef­fec­tive, rather than just say­ing “I feel un­safe.” - Zulu

It’s been an is­sue for a while which has not been stud­ied prop­erly in or­der to be solved. Also, not ev­ery dis­abled in­di­vid­ual has an op­por­tu­nity to raise this mat­ter in public. If we be­lieve that they have a right to be in­volved in the com­mu­nity, then all their needs must be ad­dressed to reach this goal. It’s a path that can­not be gone half through.

Go James...hope you get some joy. - Terri

Ev­ery­one feels un­safe in Perth taxis.

Mr Davies is an amaz­ing man and has the re­spect of many of us who op­er­ate MPTs here in Perth.
