Linda Oliver, Engagement Officer for Guide Dogs, explains the problems that can face bus passengers who are visually impaired. Without help from the driver it can be impossible to know if they are boarding the right bus or getting off at the right stop.
Guide Dogs and the RNIB are calling for all buses to be fitted with audio visual announcements. Until that happens they are offering training to bus companies, so that drivers know the simple things they can do to help passengers who are blind or partially sighted.
