Bus users with sight problems need help

East Dunbartonshire MP Jo Swinson is backing a campaign by the charity Guide Dogs to help people with sight loss use buses more easily.

The Talking Buses campaign wants audio visual (AV) information available on all buses across the UK, providing next stop announcements. Currently only 20 percent of UK buses have AV and the vast majority of those are in London.

Ms Swinson said: “I am very pleased to support the Talking Buses campaign as I know how important the work of Guide Dogs is for many people, both in East Dunbartonshire and across the country. A number of local people have been in contact about this specific issue.”
