Extra Help to Travel cards give people with a disability a way of letting a driver know that they may need additional help.

You do not need to use the card if you don’t want to, but you may find it a useful way of asking for help when you need it.¬†People usually carry the card in their purse or wallet and show it to the driver to tell them what help they need.

The card includes messages such as:

  • ‘Please be patient I have a hidden disability’
  • ‘Please face me and speak clearly, I lip read’
  • ‘Please help me find a seat’.

There are also some blank spaces for you to use if you want to include a different message.

The cards have been designed following consultation with disability groups around the UK.
