First drivers ‘swap with me’

First York bus drivers are learning first-hand how to provide an improved on-board experience for blind or partially sighted customers by taking part in a “swap with me” event.

Caption

Drivers will experience what it’s like to be on board a bus with limited or no vision.

The event was planned for First York drivers with members of the York Blind and Partially Sighted Society (YBPSS). The exercise involved drivers wearing sim specs, which help to simulate different types of sight loss. Drivers were then asked to show a bus pass and to find a seat on board the vehicle.

Training is provided to all bus drivers to help ensure they can provide the best possible experience for passengers with sight loss, however passengers are also being asked to remember to stay seated until the bus has come to a stop.
