    I think and hope disabled folk go for this as it's the only way to get the services that the disabled community need.

    That's a shame because unless you are disabled how do they know what is right for us. I am amazed at the lack of access to shops...do they not realise that a ramp fetches in custom that they need. Yes we can buy online but i would gladly spend my money in town if i could get in the shops. I have not tried the bus service yet.
