For many disabled and older people, bus travel remains a major challenge. Although buses in many areas are becoming more accessible, getting to the bus stop, getting on board and getting information about services all remain among the challenges facing people with mobility difficulties or vision impairments, for example.

This webinar will look at the Government’s Bus Strategy from the perspective of older and disabled people and will review progress and attitudes towards making bus travel more inclusive. It will focus particularly on issues affecting rural bus services on which many disabled and older people depend.

The webinar will hear from experts in the field including those with long experience of delivering bus services as well as from those with lived experience of disability.
