First published in News

Oxford Bus Company has produced a series of cards for disabled passengers to identify their needs to bus drivers.

The 12 Journey Assistance Cards cover disabilities, including deafness and visual impairment or advise the driver to allow the passenger to get seated before moving off.

Operations director Phil Southall said: “These cards will help both the passengers and our drivers to make the journey as easy and comfortable as possible.”

The free cards can be obtained by calling 01865 785400 or by visiting oxfordbus.co.uk/accessforall

I went to the website to request a card but, when I clicked on an item, it disappeared when I clicked on another item! Not much use...

I'm sorry, but waiting for people to sit down before moving off is quite basic customer care for buses and something Oxford Bus company don't do for anyone!
I used to live somewhere where buses would not move until you were seated, you would wait until it stopped to get off and drivers wished you good morning/ afternoon...radical thinking!

It works both ways Botley1 - I quite often find myself sitting on a stationary bus while an elderly passenger hobbles past a load of empty seats in the low floor section, to find a seat with a nice view in the higher section. Some of us have got somewhere to go!

Try a little patience, and don't be so selfish.

It works both way like I say - if you can act selflessly by sitting down sooner, everyone benefits.
