Bus campaign

Access barriers to buses have to be fixed. Our "Stop for me, Speak to me" bus campaign aims to secure major progress from bus operators on the crucial access issues.

 
Bus services can be the only way to get around for blind and partially sighted people but eight out of ten respondents to a recent RNIB survey said they often missed the bus they want because they could not see to hail it down and over half said they struggled to get vital information like route number and destination from bus drivers. 
 

Get involved in our bus campaign this summer!

 
Are buses stopping for you or do they still drive past? Have bus drivers become more helpful or do you still struggle to communicate with them?
 
The information you give us will help us take the campaign forward and provide “snap shot” evidence we will use when seeking change from bus operators. We want to hear about your recent experiences using buses so if you’ve not been on a bus recently why not take a trip somewhere and then let us know how it went? The survey will run until September 10th so you have plenty of time to plan some journeys over the summer and then complete the survey.
