Wheelchair Accessibility - St Clement's inbound stop

Please note that the coach ramp    on the new coaches   is incompatible with the width of the pavement at the St Clement's bus stop towards Oxford. As a result, this stop is not suitable for wheelchair users.

The alternative options are:

  • Alight at an alternative stop (Brookes or High Street) -you can change onto a service 8 or 9 to get to St Clement's.
  • Inform the driver when your board in London that you wish to alight at St Clements outbound. The driver will then allow you to stay on the coach until it reaches the   opposite   side of the road on the   London bound   journey where the ramp can then be used.
  • Travel to Gloucester Green and a member of staff will arrange onward travel   on your behalf to take you back to St Clement's.
