Lothian are committed to creating an accessible and inclusive environment in which disabled individuals, families and anyone with additional access needs can feel confident and safe.
Customers who are expecting are encouraged to use our priority seating when required for their own safety.
All of our buses can be lowered to make it easier for individuals to get on and off safely.
We understand that travelling with young children can be difficult. For those wishing to use our services, we recommend that customers consider foldable and lightweight buggies to make travel as safe and as easy as possible.
Lightweight and foldable buggies make it easier to get onto and off of the bus, as well as manoeuvring through the aisles and positioning safely in the wheelchair accessible or shared spaces. It also means that the buggy can be collapsed and stored as luggage on our busier services or where the wheelchair accessible space and/or additional shared spaces are in use.
All wheelchair accessible spaces on our buses are a minimum size of 1.3 metres in length by 0.75 metres in width, in accordance with the Public Service Vehicle Accessibility Regulations. When these spaces are not required by a wheelchair user, they may be used by a buggy user. Please note: any buggy used in this space must fit safely without causing an obstruction to the aisle or other seats. This maximum size includes any attachments, handles or bags.
Travelling with children
For customers travelling with young children who no longer use a buggy, many of our buses have ‘parent and child’ seats located at the very front of the bus near the driver. These allow easy access and are close to the doors and driver.
Please ask your bus driver if you require any assistance or email email@example.com if you have any questions.
