Bus Days ** are a real but controlled training experience (staged on a double-decker bus) aiming to help increase confidence and encourage independent travel:

Bus Days run once a month;

each sessions lasts approximately 90 minutes with up to two sessions running on each date, subject to demand/resource availability (morning 10.30am-12noon, afternoon 12.30-2pm);

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;

we meet in a central Sutton location;

we can book groups or individuals
onto the bus days.

Forthcoming Sutton Bus day dates,
attendance must be booked in advance
