Manchester Piccadilly Station

Having written and complained in detail about this station last year, I’m pleased to see that nothing has changed and they’re still as unhelpful as ever!

No assistance was forthcoming for us on Monday. There were two of us and between us we managed to sort ourselves out and get on the right train. I wonder how they think less able or less confident blind people would manage. I’ve heard of blind people missing their trains because assistance hasn’t turned up, I wonder if they care.

About Mel Griffiths

I live and work in Nottingham, England and am blind. This blog is often centred around things that happen to me because of being blind. This is my space to write and sometimes people will disagree with what I write, but its the one place I have in which to be frank and honest. I also like to reflect on the funnier side of life from time to time.

    You’re quite right to rant
    Hi Mel! I can totally sympathise with your rant about no improvement being made to assistance for blind people at Manchester Piccadilly station, especially as you have already sent them a written complaint about that in the past. I have only been to that station once, over 20 years ago, and I was met straight off the train by a sighted friend, so I didn’t have to ask for assistance, but I still think it should be available for those who request it.
