Spokesperson Goodwill Shiburi says the service has been there for 15 years but poorly marketed.

Metrobus is offering a specialised transport service dedicated to people with disabilities.

The buses are equipped with a hydraulic chair lift to assist with pickups and drop-offs.

Special stickers are displayed at the front of the bus to notify commuters. The buses have ramps that align with the pavement to make wheelchair access easy.

Joanne Joseph speaks to Metrobus spokesperson Goodwill Shiburi about the service.

We've got a professionalised and customised service for people living with disabilities.

Goodwill Shiburi, Spokesperson - Metrobus

We have about seven buses that are specifically customised to transport people living with disabilities.

Goodwill Shiburi, Spokesperson - Metrobus

The average load is about 50 per bus, adds Shiburi.

We pick up from centres, companies and homes. It depends on the number.

Goodwill Shiburi, Spokesperson - Metrobus

It is a service that has been running for the past 15 years, it's just that it is not properly marketed. We need people to register and indicate where they will be picked up.
