Thistle CardThistle Assistance Card sample

If you have a disability, you often need a little more time to get on and off public transport and to have a safe and comfortable journey to your destination. The aim of the Thistle Assistance Card is to help anyone who has difficulty in using public transport because of their age, disability or illness and who perhaps can't communicate
their requirements easily.

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.

For further information or a Thistle Card please contact Tel: 01259 450000 or ask for a card at Kilncraigs reception or at the Whins Resource Day Centre.
