My name is Ghow Ratnarajah. Everybody calls me Ghow.
I love music.
I like to go to a concert time to time
and my favourite concert venue is 02 Arena.
I use public transport every day, basically.
I use buses, local bus service,
and also London Underground and network service as well.
There are lots of facilities along the way
to make life easier.
And the staff are there to help you.
You should ask them for assistance any time that you need it.
The ticket machines are designed to be easier to use.
I always go through the wide gates.
It's easier for me and useful for wheelchair users, too.
Sixty-six stations in London are like this one -
step free, all the way down to the platform.
WOMAN OVER PA: For your safety and security, CCTV...
There's tactile paving there to help people with sight loss such as myself.
In fact, 90% of the stations have tactile paving.
Another thing that TFL are doing to help with the step up
is installing platform humps on some platforms.
These raise the platforms to the level of the train.
Look out for the signs for these.
We all heard the phrase, "Mind the gap".
Across different stations,
the size of the gap and step varies quite a lot.
You can find the information you may need about this
using the Step-Free Tube Guide.
You can find this on the TFL website.
There are priority seating areas inside the tube carriages.
They are just inside the doors.
Not all of the stations are accessible.
You are always best to check on the TFL website
and on the Tube map before you travel.
AV SYSTEM: Next station is North Greenwich.
Exit here for the O2.
GHOW: Here I am at North Greenwich Arena.
Jay-Z is one of my favourite artists. I'm looking forward to his concert.
