Buses play a vital role in enabling disabled people, including those who are blind or partially-sighted, to live more independent lives. But the worry of not being sure if you have got on the right bus, where you are on your journey, or when your stop is coming up, puts many people off using them.
Guide Dogs is campaigning for a change in the law to make audio and visual information – including audible announcements of the current stop, next stop and final destination – available on board bus and coach services across the UK.
This will enable blind and partially-sighted people to use buses with confidence, and improve the experience of bus travel for all passengers
