travel benifits(bus)

New single-decker and double-decker buses are designed to be accessible to disabled people, including wheelchair users.

Local councils offer eligible disabled people in their area free off-peak travel on local bus services; there is no charge for the bus pass.

Yes you are right here the buses door must be in some shape by what the those person can easily come on and come off. As you said here the bus passes should be provide free to them is good to travel if they really need to do that for some job or else.
I think they already have free bus passes, Government is providing this facility I think.

Re: travel benifits(bus)

low floor buses should be introduced in the city. low floor is very convenient for wheelchairs. the doors, at least one door, should be wide enough to let the wheelchair in easily. and of course free passes is a must in all modes of public transport.

Re: travel benifits(bus)

This isn't that nice in reality at all. Low floor busses make it easier for older people, but the entrance doesn't help people getting in the bus by wheelchair. In addition the bus is during many times of day overcrowded. Many people are in the bus "packed," particularly with a wheelchair there is really no chance to enter. Also other needy people like mothers with children want to drive in the bus. So most people with wheelchair will require a special transport.

The  important task of properly equipping the busses nevertheless remains of course. Because people with other handicaps also have many advantages of busses which are accessible well
