Wheelchair users to get priority spaces on buses
Wheelchair users will be given priority over mothers with pushchairs under new bus guidelines, the Government has announced.
The decision follows a landmark Supreme Court judgment last year that ruled bus companies must do more to make sure wheelchair users are given priority spaces on buses. The court ruled drivers must consider if it is reasonable to “pressurise” reluctant passengers to move. Nusrat Ghani, the transport minister, said: “Drivers need to play an active role in ensuring that the wheelchair space is made available… which includes requiring other passengers to move where necessary.”
