I live in Edinburgh where we still have a proper local service (LRT) with steps that can be lowered and two routes now with voice indicator of stops and destination. I am disabled (slow walking with partial vision (lowering of bus helps me to get on and off with a shopping trolley and with my partial vision the voice is a great help at night. Occasional use of First Bus and Stagecoach, difficult to get into. New LRT buses also have much more space, much easier for wheelchair users. Charles S Coventry, Colkinton, Edinburgh.
