Bridge Card

    Valid on:

If you have difficulty using public transport because of age, disability, illness, or you simply lack confidence, you can carry a Bridge Card.

It shows transport staff that the you might need additional support when you use public transport. 

When you show the card to transport staff they will recognise that you may need extra help during your journey.

You don't have to register for the scheme. You just have to carry a card and show it to transport staff if you need help.

The card does not entitle you to a concessionary or discount fare.
