First buses have produced cards for people who have a disability to use on their buses. They are called Safe Journey and Better Journey cards.
First buses are promoting them on their website. The cards have space to add personal help info as well as a range of options like 'I need help to count my change', 'Please be patient, I have a hidden disability' and 'Please wait for me to sit down'; they are credit card size and come in a plastic wallet.
If First buses does not operate your area, does your local bus company offer a similar scheme? If they do, we would like to hear from you with their details so we can share it with family carers in your area.
