ECT Charity provided the accessible shuttle service at the Invictus Games, which took place in London from 11th to 14th September 2014.

ECT Charity is incredibly proud to have played a part in such an inspirational event. The demand-led service provided transport for over 1,300 spectators with mobility difficulties including wheelchair users from Stratford Regional station to various stops around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, as well as for Lea Valley athletics. A team of dedicated service controllers were posted at every stop, managing the demand responsive service to ensure that it met the needs of spectators arriving and leaving each event.

For able-bodied people, the 20-30 minute walk from the station to the venues was a pleasant stroll, but for those with disabilities, and their carers, it presented a difficult journey. The service provided by ECT helped ensure this journey was easy, making the Invictus Games an accessible event for all.
