Mobility scooter voluntary code to be adopted on Island

Accessibility on buses to be looked at by gov't

Tynwald members have told the Infrastructure Department to adopt UK voluntary practice regarding mobility scooters being carried on busses.

After a considerable debate, an amendment from Onchan member, Julie Edge was accepted.

The motion says that, as well as adopting the code, there will be a steering group brought together to look at this issue and other aspects of accessibility on busses.

Tynwald will expect a report by October.
