Hovertravel prints larger timetables
In the UK, there are almost 2 million people living with sight loss and The Royal National Institute for Blind People estimates that 93% of people who are registered blind or partially sighted retain some useful vision.
Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, adds: “Although our timetables are available online to view or download, we have always printed a small number of pocket-sized paper timetables. As part of our Hovercare initiative we have been listening to feedback from our customers and there were several requests for a much larger timetable. So, we have created a super-size version which when folded out measures a whopping 49x42 cm yet folds into pocket-size when not being used.”
Hovertravel’s Hovercare initiative continues to evolve by listening to customers and other groups in the community and acting on their feedback to make the experience of travelling by hovercraft even more accessible. Hovertravel’s large and small timetables are available at both Ryde and Southsea terminals.
