- There is seating for the elderly or infirm and support on-hand for those requiring special assistance.
Work is also in hand to provide detailed information on bus route diversions and digitalised information on all scheduled bus departure times from the Terminus along with other bus related information.
The second phase will provide much improved rest facilities for drivers and other staff working at the Terminus on the first floor of the premises.
Further transport related services are planned on the ground floor at a later date, including the hire of folding cycles which can be taken on the scheduled buses.
A presence on the Terminus will be maintained by the Duty Controller who will be on hand to answer any customer enquiries.
