Main Digest

The PIE Guide, in association with London Councils, is pleased to announce the launch of the latest Blue Badge Guide for London.


Blue Badge - The U.K. Blue Badge scheme allows drivers of passengers with severe mobility problems to park close to where they need to go. In England, Blue Badge holders may generally park: on single or double yellow lines for up to three hours, unless there is a ban on loading or unloading at 'on-street' parking meters and pay-and-display machines for free and for as long as they need to in disabled parking bays.

The new guide provides essential updates required by Blue Badge holders detailing the changes to parking regulations, bay locations and the complex parking rules within London.

With the 2012 Games being a truly inclusive event, we hope this unique experience will provide a catalyst to improve the accessibility of transport networks across London.

Access improvements can help many people travel more comfortably, such as people with small children and even passengers carrying luggage.

For some disabled and older people, however, these improvements may mean they can use public transport for the first time, unlocking a host of new travel opportunities.

The new guide includes all the mapping and accessibility information around the Olympic Park. We hope that it will help empower disabled people to make full use of public transport and the blue badge scheme both during and after the games.

Recommended by The Department for Transport and sponsored by London Councils, the guide contains vital information for the registered blue badge driver i.e. parking bays, car parks and petrol stations along with additional content highlighting the accessible tube stations, taxi ranks, accessible toilets, shop-mobility centers and a useful directory of services.

The PIE Guide is also in partnership with SOLT (Society of London Theaters) and has incorporated their access information for all London theaters within the guide.
