Commuting just got easier for disabled bus riders in Oxford, England. Separate spaces for luggage, guide dogs and wheelchairs have been created on Oxford Bus Company vehicles, and were launched by Oxford West and Abingdon MP, Nicola Blackwood in mid-September. The company will host sessions at Cowley House to help those with mobility issues familiarize themselves with the new layout of the buses.
In addition to the newly created spaces, the floor entrances on the buses can lower to the curb level and now have no steps. There are also high visibility handrails and wider spaces between front rows.
