A CALL has been issued for the introduction of more “talking buses” to make travel easier for blind and deaf passengers.

Great Yarmouth MP Tony Wright is backing a campaign for buses and coaches to have audible and visual announcements.

The Guide Dogs charity is urging the government to make it compulsory for audio-visual information systems to be installed on all new buses and coaches.

Mr Wright said: “I am pleased to offer my support to this initiative from Guide Dogs for the blind. It is one that should be taken up by the bus companies and given support by the government. I will be raising this issue with ministers.”
