LibertyBus launch Accessibility Card
LibertyBus have just launched their Accessibility Card, which aims to allow individuals who need additional support to travel confidently on the bus.
Accessibility Cards are completely free and can be collected from LibertyBus Customer Service desk at Liberation Station from 16th January 2017.
The cards are credit card size and come with stickers relating to various needs, which allow LibertyBus drivers to give those who need specific support or even just more time boarding the bus, the assistance they need.
Nikki Withe, HR, Training & Community Transport Manager, said: ‘We are really excited to launch the LibertyBus Accessibility Card. We’ve worked hard over the last 6 months with Jersey Mencap, JDP, EyeCan, Les Amis, Jersey Stroke Association and Highlands Life Skills students we have hopefully been able to make sure we’ve got our card right for the user.’
Nikki continued: ‘Over the next couple of weeks we will be talking to various groups and communities in the Island that this card could really help, and handing the cards for their clients out – so we expect to see quite a few in circulation over the next months.’
The Accessibility Card doesn’t allow free travel, but rather it is a discreet assistance card for those who’d like the extra support when traveling on the bus. LibertyBus have produced the card to show the support that they offer for those with disabilities, allowing everyone to travel confidently and independently on their public bus network.
