The world is moving to a time when everybody should be treated equally. People also believe that services should be offered equally without looking at the condition of a particular person. The United Kingdom has come up with measures to accommodate even people with disabilities on buses.
These measures have enabled buses to have facilities which support disabled persons.
The United Kingdom’s transport system currently supports the use of buses by disabled persons. However, this information is currently not known by some of the people living with disabilities. This is because a little percentage of them still do not like accessing the buses. The United Kingdom has been working on making public transport available to all types of people over the last two decades.
Here are some of the measures enforced in the United Kingdom to make it easy for people with disabilities to access a bus.
Giving People Information
The United Kingdom has come up with this measure to enable other passengers to understand how to treat disabled people on a bus. This information also enables passengers to understand which positions on a bus are specifically reserved for people with disabilities. This information enables all types of passengers on a bus to get along smoothly.
Creating Passing Lanes for the Disabled
The United Kingdom has made some passing lanes in bus stations which enable the disabled to move freely. The buses also have a ramp for wheelchairs to get on a bus. This allows people with wheelchairs to get on board effortlessly.
Buses in the United Kingdom have audio assistants who broadcast to passengers on a bus. This is meant to help the visually impaired persons on board.
This is used to help deaf people understand what is happening on the bus. This helps deaf people to feel comfortable on a bus.
