RE: Stagecoach North East: Latest News & Discussion - April 2018
On the subject of next stop announcements, I think for the visually impaired and those who are not sure where they are going, they can be very useful. However, they are not always on and sometimes they are behind.

Stagecoach previously saying passengers have mixed feelings about them as Cock Robin told me in this same thread, makes sense. Bus operators are serving ALL passengers, not SOME passengers who benefit from the announcements. I can see how they can be annoying when you don't need them. My opinion is as not all bus services have them within the same operator, they are unfair and pointless anyway. Stagecoach doesn't have them so again that is unfair. Either ALL services have them - GNE, Arriva, Stagecoach, GCT, Stanley Travel, Phoenix etc or none do. I am in favour of NSAs, but only if people need them and use them.

Stop names are inconsistent and that also causes some confusion.

I think for public transport accessibility NSAs will be mandatory in the future. Some people won't like it but some people most probably don't like not having them now.
