FROM THE WEB
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.
