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. 
 
Diane Marks, RNIB Volunteer Campaigns Co-ordinator in the South East, has recorded a short film to inspire seasoned and new campaigners to mystery shop their local bus services in the Summer.

As we get closer to summer we'll provide you with the short questionnaires to complete after your journeys and we will collate them all to get a picture of how accessible bus services are and the helpfulness of bus drivers.

Keep watching this space and we'll get more information and resources to you as we get closer to Summer 2014!
