Information about Accessibility for our coach services

Wheelchair access 

Every one of our low floor coaches is able to carry a wheelchair. However, we must stress that we can only carry one open wheelchair per coach. If the coach is full then all customers, including those with a wheelchair, must wait for the next coach.  

Maximum dimensions/weights for wheelchairs are as follows: 

Wheelchair Accessibility at St Clement's inbound stop: 

Please note that the coach ramp is incompatible with the width of the pavement at the St Clement's bus stop towards Oxford. As a result, this stop is not suitable for wheelchair users.

Further information about accessible travel is available in our FAQ's and Contact section

Mobility scooter access 

Mobility scooters can make use of the wheelchair space providing that they comply with the dimensions and weights listed above.

Customers wishing to travel in a mobility scooter should be in possession of a mobility scooter permit.

These can be obtained by contracting Stagecoach who will arrange for your mobility scooter to be assessed.  Mobility scooters cannot be accommodated in the luggage hold. 

I’m blind, visually impaired or hearing impaired 

We do our best to accommodate everyone. That's why we try to make sure all our materials and information are accessible.

The following information explains our approach to making this website accessible; the features provided to enhance the site’s accessibility, and what to do if you have any questions or feedback for us.

Accessibility guidelines

This site, where possible, has been developed to conform to level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.2). These guidelines are the internationally recognised benchmark for building accessible web sites. The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines explain how to make websites more accessible for people with disabilities.

Using the website   

We are actively working to ensure our website is as accessible as possible, and as part of our aim to provide the most accessible experience possible for our visitors we have implemented the following accessibility features:

Keyboard navigation

Changing the display colour and font

Although we do not offer any alternate colour schemes to display the website, you can use the controls in your browser to change the size of the text or the colour of the display.

We work to ensure that the contrast of text and background colour combinations is sufficient, and we have also ensured that information is not referenced or communicated by colour alone.

Links, new windows, and layers

Links contain clear text and can be understood out of context for screen reader users.

Links to pages on the same website will open in the same window. Links to pages on external websites will open in a new window.

Links to downloadable documents and files will open in a new window to avoid conflicting with assistive technologies.

You can open links in a new window by using the keyboard shortcut Shift + Enter in most modern browsers. Please note: the keyboard shortcut for opening links in a new window may be different depending on the browser and operating system.
