Disabled Access Day 2016
Disabled access day takes place on Saturday 12 March 2016, see below for some of the activities taking place in Winchester:
Stagecoach South will have one of their new vehicles on display in the Broadway in Winchester from 10am until 1pm on 11th March. Members of the community will have the opportunity to have a look around it and ask any questions they have about access for those with disabilities. The main aim is to give participants the opportunity to familiarise themselves with a Stagecoach vehicle and to build confidence by giving users the opportunity to discuss bus use and ask any questions which they may have. Please note this event takes place on Friday 11th March.
