First Bus offer a Travel Safety Card, which lets you tell the driver what extra help you may need to make your bus journey. This could include needing more time to reach your seat, or you need the driver to speak up because you are hard of hearing.
Whatever your need, you can use these cards to let the driver know in a private and discreet way, and there are even blank spaces for you to fill in the details of your destination or special instructions.
