Thistle Assistance Card

The Thistle Assistance Card and App was developed to make using public transport easier for older people and those with disabilities or illness.

It is supported by all 7 Regional Transport Partnerships, Transport Scotland, Transport Operators and disability groups (including RNIB, SATA, Disability Equality Scotland).

The card and App, is supported by a wide variety of voluntary organisations across Scotland and by most bus, train, tram, ferry and airport operators. It is credit-card sized and comes with a supply of peel-off stickers, which advise the driver or conductor of your disability and the help you need in an easy-to-read format.

The App is downloadable for both Apple and Android enabled devices from Apple App Store and Play Store.

The card is available to all people who require it with no eligibility criteria required.
