Please offer me a seat badge

TFL (Transport for London) is rolling out a new scheme to help people who find it difficult to find a seat on public transport.  The “Please offer me a seat badge” is available for free to passengers with hidden conditions and illnesses that are not easily noticed, such as vision impairments.

The badge can be used across the entire TFL network, including buses, London Underground, Overground, and waiting areas on station platforms.

TFL have advised that they will not ask customers requesting a badge for their medical history or supporting documentation.

Those wishing to apply for a free badge can do so by visiting: https://tfl.gov.uk/transport-accessibility/please-offer-me-a-seat
