 If a wheelchair user is unable to board, for any reason, a free accessible taxi will be offered as part of the Wheelchair Taxi Guarantee Scheme 

All buses have Dementia friendly flooring, supporting ‘grab’ rails and priority seating

Helping Hand is an award winning assistance card scheme which allows bus users to discreetly advise of any assistance they may require. The card can be particularly helpful for disabled people with a non-visible impairment.
