ECT Charity is delighted to have been chosen as the transport partner for the World Para Athletics Championships and the IAAF World Championships, taking place in London between the 14th July to 23rd August.

Starting today, ECT will be delivering the accessible shuttle service, allowing all spectators irrespective of their mobility needs to attend the two events at the iconic London Stadium Stadium Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The accessible shuttle service will run from platform 13 of the Jubilee Line at Stratford station to the Olympic Park, dropping off close to the Stadium.

Anna Whitty, CEO of ECT Charity, said: “We are committed to a quality model having successfully led the provision of accessible shuttle buses for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Invictus Games 2014, 2015 Rugby World Cup and Parallel London. We are delighted to now be involved in these two major international athletics events, and to see a continued commitment by sporting bodies to making these events so accessible.”
