Stagecoach North Scotland employees will take part in a training session today (6 March) as part of the operator’s pledge to make its services more accessible to blind and partially sighted people.

The ‘swap-with-me’ event will give its drivers a better idea of what every day travel is like for passengers with sight loss.

Drivers will don 'sim specs' that simulate different eye conditions, while people with sight loss will sit upfront in the cab and experience things from from the driver’s perspective.
