VISUALLY-impaired bus passengers are to benefit from a new scheme to introduce talking bus stops.

Ninety bus stops across Portsmouth will be upgraded so people can hear relevant bus information.

Run by the Royal National Institute of Blind People, residents will be able to buy fobs at 25 per cent of the full cost, with Portsmouth City Council paying the difference. The fobs, costing £10, allow blind and visually-impaired people to hear announcements at bus stops.

For more information call Julie Duffy on (023) 9282 9923.
