Egged to improve bus services for blind people in Israel

Egged has started work on on acquiring and installing announcement systems on their bus to help visually impaired bus passengers in Israel.

This follows a recent indictment issued by the Commission for Equal Rights of Persons with Disabilities in court saying that Egged does not follow the law which requires transport companies to announce bus stops so that visually impaired passengers can easily travel on public transport.

Egged also said that their drivers are expected to announce each stop for their passengers.
