Disabled people have given such distressing examples of discrimination, particularly when getting on and off buses, that two of the borough's MPs have vowed to bring it up at Westminster.
John Randall, MP for Uxbridge, and Nick Hurd, MP for Ruislip Northwood, were at a question time organised at Christchurch, Uxbridge, by DASH (Disablement Association of Hillingdon).
Ibrahim Rahman outlined the difficulties he experienced, including one day being denied access to four consecutive buses, because drivers had been unwilling or unable to persuade people with prams to give up the space reserved for wheelchairs.
Mr Rahman, who lives in Hayes, said he has often had to wait up to an hour as one bus after another refused him entry, and he felt humiliated when he had to appeal to drivers while passengers looked on.
He said: "It is very upsetting; it makes me feel l am being treated like a second class citizen."
The meeting also heard drivers had refused mobility scooters boarding their buses, others did not operate ramps effectively, and some request stops were hard to access because of parked cars.
The MPs, who were keen to hear from other disabled people about their experiences with local bus services, pledged they would try to get a short debate on the subject in Parliament.
The meeting concluded that although the recent changes to the Disability Discrimination Act at the end of 2006 should mean disabled people being treated fairly on public transport, this does not appear to be happening locally.
