Transport for London (TfL), the government body responsible for the transport system in the UK capital, is trialling a blue badge that alerts passengers to those who need a seat on public transport. This is a result of feedback and research that found people with hidden disabilities and conditions, or those undergoing treatments, can often find it difficult to get a seat.

“Please offer me a seat” badges, along with cards that can be shown to TfL staff, are being given out to 1,000 people for the six-week trial in order to assess how effective they are.

TfL is using social media and customer information to encourage Londoners to offer their seat to someone with a badge when the trial starts on September 12. If the trial is successful, the badges will become more widely available later this year.
