Applegreen joins forces with fuelService to help fuel Disabled Drivers

Applegreen is delighted to announce that they have joined forces with fuelService and the Disabled Drivers Association of Ireland (DDAI) to help disabled drivers receive assistance whilst refuelling at Applegreen stations across the country.

Refuelling a car is one of the biggest challenges faced by disabled drivers, and Applegreen is proud to be the first Irish forecourt retailer to roll out this app service and go some way towards making refuelling easier and more accessible for disabled drivers.

Experiences such as having to sit on a forecourt beeping the car horn, flashing the lights and waving disability badges to receive help to refuel at a pump on a forecourt were behind the creation of the fuelService app. The app offers a two-step process to take the uncertainty and stress out of refueling for disabled drivers. Step one helps the driver locate the nearest Applegreen petrol station where there is an available staff member to help them.

Step two allows forecourt staff to let drivers know when they should arrive at the forecourt, then alerts staff when they arrive allowing drivers to be assisted as efficiently as possible and take the stress out of filling up their car.

The app, is a simple but effective solution to a huge difficulty faced by disabled drivers across the country. Applegreen is confident that by joining with fuelService they will play a part in liberating disabled drivers from a very difficult and often stressful experience.

Applegreen are encouraging customers with smartphones to download the free fuelService app http://get.fuelservice.org where they can find their nearest participating Applegreen site.
