Bus drivers in Newcastle have been given training to help them help visually impaired passengers. The training was organised by the Royal National Institute of Blind People after it discovered how many of its members struggle when using buses.
The RNIB hopes to provide training and advice to all bus companies, to ensure that drivers know what kind of help they should offer. Buses are a lifeline for people with visual impairments but seeing the right bus coming, finding a seat and knowing when the right stop is can be very difficult.
