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.

Two years ago the EU passed legislation that would increase rights for disabled bus passengers, including mandatory disability awareness for drivers. But the UK Government is still delaying and are currently reviewing when they should introduce it. Write to the Minister today to tell her important it is that this vital legislation is introduced!
