How to make bus tours more accessible

When thinking about making bus tours more accessible, the objective would be to ensure that everyone is given an equal opportunity to enjoy it all. So how could this be accomplished? Here are some hints to get you started.

  1. You need to think of as many different types of consumers; from the youngest to the oldest, male and female, and consumers with special needs.
  2. Special needs consumers would range from the senior to the mom with strollers and young kids. Consumers with physical and mobility disabilities. Consumers with hearing and vision disabilities. Consumers with various types of learning disabilities. Consumers whose first language may not be the one in which you are offering your service.
  3. Buses should be made to accommodate wheelchairs. The seats should be comfy and spaces between them should be wide enough to accommodate persons with mobility disabilities.
  4. Entrances to buses should be wide enough to accommodate wheelchairs and those with walkers and canes.
  5. Passageways on buses should be wide enough to accommodate the same.
  6. Your staff should be trained in the rudiments of rendering assistance to persons with a disability.
  7. If you provide running commentaries of sites as the bus is traveling, make sure that audio is clear and that descriptions are easy to follow.

This should be enough to get you started on the right track.
