We want you to have a safe journey when you're travelling around on public transport. Take a look at this short video about travelling safely on bus services, with a special emphasis on senior travellers. For more travelling tips please visit .
A safe journey is simple on public transport. One of the easiest ways to keep yourself safe on a bus especially if it's raining is to take a seat. If you need help getting on the bus, just ask. The drivers are happy to assist.
Always try to sit up the front if a spot is available. It's the closest seat to the door, so you are always sitting down by the time the bus takes off, and that way there's less chance of slipping over or having a fall.
You can always hold on to the back of the seats if you feel like you might lose your balance. Plus you are near the driver, so you can speak to them easily if you have any concerns.
