Getting on board

The charity behind a new study into mobility scooters for the Department for Transport has also published a useful, practical guide to taking them on buses.

The research, published by Rica, covers market trends and the profile of mobility users and includes a consultation on class 3 scooters.  And with accessibility high on the policy agenda for public transport, the charity has also drawn up some independent guidance for anyone looking to take their mobility scooter onto a bus.

There’s information on which models are allowed on low-floor buses, a list of participating bus companies and a dynamic scooter and powered wheelchair search that allows you to find the right model for you.
