The majority of local bus services serving the West of England are operated with low-floor vehicles that make travelling by bus easy and accessible for all.

Whilst services are continually being improved, please be aware that occasionally a bus may arrive which is not low-floor and that not all bus stops have raised kerbs yet.

Wheelchair users

  • Ask the driver to lower the step / ramp to allow you to board – ask for help if you need it
  • Reverse your wheelchair into the dedicated space so you’re facing backwards and put on the brake
  • You have priority use of the wheelchair space, but only one wheelchair is allowed per bus
  • Aisles and gangways must be kept clear at all times

Pushchair / Buggy users

  • If you’re having trouble getting on or off, just ask the driver to lower the step
  • Park your buggy in the special ‘buggy zone’, put on the brakes and keep hold of it at all times
  • Space for buggies is limited and varies depending on the bus – the driver may ask you to fold it up and stow it in the luggage rack
  • Aisles and gangways must be kept clear at all times

Safe Journey & Better Journey Cards

If you need a little extra help or understanding to successfully travel by bus, First Group has introduced a discreet and private way of communicating your precise needs to the driver.
