What are Bus Days?

Bus Days are a real but controlled training experience (staged on a double-decker bus) aiming to help increase confidence and encourage independent travel, especially amongst vulnerable groups.

Each sessions lasts approximately 90 minutes, bus days usually run once a month (excluding July / August).

We meet in a central Sutton location.  Groups or individuals can attend.

We run scenarios around difficult events/situations which may occur during travel and advise how to deal with them.  Training includes aspects of travel such as personal/belongings safety as well as transport specific information.
