Dawn butler asks about Bus Services: Disability

Dawn Butler To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if he will bring before the House legislative proposals on requiring bus companies to instal audio-visual technology to aid visually impaired passengers.

 

I know that accessible on-board information can give a range of passengers the confidence to use bus services, safe in the knowledge that they will know when to alight. Previously, the systems to provide such information have been expensive to fit and maintain, but I understand that new technology may make it more affordable.We are currently considering the most appropriate next steps, but in the meantime I encourage bus operators to consider the benefits of better, more accessible information for all their customers.
