To enhance bus use for all passengers an inclusive approach to information provision needs to be adopted. To this end research was undertaken to identify improvements to display design which would be of benefit to all passengers. Members of the public participated in the research including people with a range of visual impairments including Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Retinitis Pigmentosa and Cataracts. The different forms of display technology were assessed under day and night conditions in terms of reading distances, reading time and viewing angles as well as participant opinions.
