New audio aids ease bus travel

New audio-visual aids designed to help youngsters and adults with learning difficulties enjoy safer and more independent bus travel have been created with the help of Arriva Derby.

The operator teamed up on the initiative with online teaching community ‘YouTeachMeToo’, a subscription-based online service that enables parents to access videos of successful and alternative teaching techniques.

Paul Rose (pictured), the former Derby head teacher who is behind, contacted Arriva to partner with him after discussing the growing need for more tailored video content for those with special needs with colleagues at Loughborough’s Ashmount School. He praised Arriva for listening to the ideas and participating.

“Being involved in the project has been incredibly eye-opening and humbling,” says Eve Ginever, PR and Stakeholder Manager for Arriva Midlands

 “We truly believe these videos will help to boost the confidence and independence of anyone who may have struggled in these kinds of scenarios before, and that with our support along with that of their parents, carers or teachers, these passengers will be able to enjoy a better journey on the bus in future.”
