The low floor buses have a wheelchair ramp and a dedicated wheelchair space that can be used by nearly all wheelchair users. The driver will set the ramp to board and disembark. Please let the driver know if you then need additional help while using the ramp.
Arrangements can be made to test new or different wheelchairs for access to the buses by calling the customer services team.
In addition, the buses have kneeling suspension so they can be lowered to provide easy access for older people or people with disabilities. Passengers are advised to wait for the bus to completely lower before attempting to board. Please also use the handrails.
Should you require any additional assistance, please ask the driver who will be happy to help.
the accessibility card
For those passengers who may require a little extra assistance we are pleased to offer an accessibility card.
Catering for a range of special requirements, these cards allow the holder to discretely and confidently advise the driver of the help they need, as they board.
Cards are available at the Town Terminus Shop
or by calling 700456.
