Travel wallet – let bus drivers know what help you need


A travel wallet is bright orange and has plastic pockets inside.  You can keep everything together that helps you use the bus on your own.



They can be used by anyone who travels on a bus and has:

  • a learning disability
  • a physical disability
  • hearing or sight loss.

Travel wallets are free.


You can make cards to keep in your travel wallet.  You can show these to the bus driver to show what help you might need or where you're going. 

Your cards might include:

  • emergency contact information
  • help you need – for example: "I'm deaf, please look at me when you speak."
  • where you want to travel to.

You can use our full Easy Read guide to help you get started. This includes templates you can use to put in to your orange wallet.
