Blind people in Barcelona now have a safer way to get on the city's buses.

Blind people in Barcelona now have a safer way to get on the city's buses. Barcelona's 2,500 bus stops now have special recycled rubber tiles which create tactile paths for blind people to follow to the bus door. Experts say that this rubber will not wear out and will not give any problems to other passengers waiting at the bus stop. Another blue rubber tile has also been placed to inform disabled passengers where to wait for the central bus door where a ramp lowers down.
