The Government remains committed to publishing best practice guidance on the provision of high quality disability awareness training for bus and coach drivers, to support operators to ensure that every driver has the knowledge and skills to assist disabled passengers.

We will publish the guidance later in the year and will work with the bus and coach industry to encourage its adoption.
