Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
On board staff aren't always willing to tell people to move or to intervene if they are harrassing disabled passengers.

This is horrible. I wonder if such boorishness, both in its aggressive and passive forms, is generational: what I mean is that when I was a kid, giving the seat to old people or mothers with babies getting on the bus was pretty much automatic, but it doesn't even occur to younger people today. This should really be taught. At school.

Lifts ... often not working.

Heh, and I was thinking that this is a 'speciality' of infrastructure management by my company...

As the alternative to lifts, what about ramps in place of/parallel with staircases? EU-funded reconstructions of rural stations tend to include ramps instead of lifts.
