SEStran has developed the Thistle Asistance Card to make using public transport easier for older people or those with disabilities or illness.
The card, which is supported by a wide variety of voluntary organisations in South East Scotland and by most bus operators, is credit-card sized and comes with a supply of peel-off stickers, which advise the driver of your disability and the help you need in an easy-to-read format.
Following the success and popularity of the card, SEStran is making the design files available to appropriate local authorities at no charge, so that these can be used as a template for the production of similar access cards throughout the country.
The files will be made available to bone fide public authorities only. Private individuals and commercial organisations are not eligible
