Focus on accessibility at Coach & Bus Live 2015

The Accessibility Zone – “Accessible Solutions by Rescroft” – will feature once again at Coach & Bus Live with an even larger dedicated zone in the heart of the event, say the organisers.

Following its success at Euro Bus Expo 2014, Rescroft Sales Director Neil Widdowfield says: “Accessible Solutions at Coach & Bus Live 2015 will be a bigger and better event for visitors. We have increased the size of the zone to accommodate a wider range of specialist vehicles and equipment.”

Rescroft is bringing together its wealth of experience in the accessibility sector, gained from its Ambulex and Accessible Solutions brands, which combine patient transport, accessible, community, local authority, special needs and mobility transport solutions.

Mike Phillips, who organises the majority of Rescroft’s events, says: “We are delighted that this initiative is being supported by the Association of Transport Co-Ordinating Officers (ATCO) which will hold special events for their members during the two-day exhibition. It was a natural progression for us to work with the organisers to develop this content for the show.”

Visitors will see a varied range of mini and midi vehicles built by several manufacturers, the latest seating products and a range of other equipment.

The Zone, with around 30 specialised companies, will combine with the Coach & Bus Live event to bring together all aspects of public transport under one roof over two days at NEC, on 30 September-1 October.

Group Director of show organiser Diversified Communications, Mark Griffin, says: “Undoubtedly there is a return of confidence to this important sector of the market.

“There have been some great product innovations recently and last November saw a huge interest in mini and midi vehicles from visitors. Demand this year to exhibit is unprecedented and we look forward to working with all of our stakeholders in the coming months to deliver a great domestic showcase for our industry.”
