The end of May saw the return of Travel Buddy’s ‘Drama on the Bus’ in conjunction with Brighton & Hove Buses, where the people we support had the opportunity to practice their travel skills and ask the bus drivers questions. The group got to meet some of the newly qualified bus drivers and give them advice on how best to help people with a learning disability to feel safe and happy while travelling on the bus.
“A thumbs up from everyone. There were lots of smiles and it was really good to meet some newly qualified drivers and give them some pointers on how to help people with a leaning disability feel comfortable and able to approach them when using the bus.” – Claire, Travel Buddy Team Leader
Travel Buddy will be running further Drama on the Bus events throughout the coming year, as well as a ‘Try a Train’ day in July. If you’re interested in taking part, book early as places will be limited.
