Nexus, in partnership with bus operators and the 5 local authorities in Tyne and Wear are introducing the Bridge Card to anyone who may need additional support whilst travelling.
If you have difficulty using public transport because of age, disability, illness, or you simply lack confidence, you can carry a Bridge Card.
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
