Priority seating and wheelchair spaces

Every bus has a designated wheelchair spaces, which you can find by looking for the wheelchair symbol on the outside of the carriage or using the level access boarding point.
All wheelchair spaces are at least large enough for a 'reference' wheelchair of 700mm x 1200mm.
Visible information is provided extensively across our buses.
You can plan a journey using either our Timetables, or by downloading our APP from either Googleplay or the Apple Store
Printed timetables can be sent to you by calling 01025 364087, or will be available for collection from your local Borough Council Office, Post Office or Tourist Information.
Any person requiring audio support can contact the office on 01205 364087 or speak to a member of our staff.
Whilst in most places there is a step or a gap onto buses, most buses are able to kneel to reduce the step-up. Drivers are expected to pull in close to the kerb where there is one in situ. If you need low-floor access and the driver has not already knelt the vehicle, please ask if he can do so.
