The public transport network in Nottingham aims to remove barriers to travel and increase independence for all by working with local transport operators, other agencies and disability groups.

How have we made public transport accessible?

  • Nottingham’s buses are low-floor and fully accessible, with a wheelchair rear facing space and priority seating
  • 75% of buses have audio and visual announcements, enabling those with visual or hearing problems the confidence to know that they are getting off at the right stop
  • Real time information at bus stops helps customers to feel confident in knowing that their bus will be arriving shortly
  • Raised tactile buttons are located on the bottom right hand corner of timetable cases in the city centre and main routes. These buttons confirm the bus stop number
  • Large font on the bus stop plates (at the very top of the bus stop pole) to improve visibility for the visually impaired
  • Nottingham offers an Easylink service which provides door to door accessible transport for those that struggle on the main public transport network
