Stagecoach North Scotland holds
‘swap with me’ event

Stagecoach North Scotland employees have taken part in a vital training session as part of the operator's pledge to make its services more accessible to blind and partially sighted people.



The company which operates throughout Aberdeen and shire, Buchan, Moray and the Highlands held a 'swap with me' event with drivers and passengers.

Stagecoach North Scotland previously signed a charter from RNIB that commits it to meeting the needs of passengers with a visual impairment.

At the event at Aberdeen Bus Station, drivers wore special 'sim specs' that simulate different eye conditions and experienced the barriers that blind and partially sighted passengers face when travelling.
 

Mark Whitelocks, MD for Stagecoach North Scotland says: "We want to make it as easy and safe as possible for people who are blind and partially sighted to use our services here in North Scotland.”
