C. Decaux that bagged the contract has, in a letter to disability rights group Samarthya, offered to provide access ramps, tactile tiles and braille plates at all the shelters.
Earlier, a number of measures including maintaining the height of the shelters at 380 m.m. to make them compatible with low floor buses operating under the High Capacity Bus System, to have a ramp on both sides with handrails at two levels, and textural or tactile clues for persons with visual impairment had been suggested. Further, it was stated that there should be demarcated space under the shelter for two wheelchairs, Braille plates with name of the bus shelter and routes in Hindi and English, and audio beepers for orienting blind persons.
