GO GEORGE invited to talk about accessibility at Library Week
In honour of National Library Week, George Library Services hosted a disability workshop at the George Museum last week. Presentations included a section on accessibility for people living with disabilities.
The GO GEORGE communications team used the opportunity to explain how the bus service and buses have been designed to serve the needs of all passengers, including those with disabilities or special circumstances. The team received most valuable feedback from attendees with special needs, and have already passed it on to management and the operational team for investigation and/or consideration.
