The ‘Orange Wallet’ is one of a range of collaborative regional projects funded by the Welsh Government as part of the All Wales ASD strategy.
It is intended to help people, especially those on the Autistic Spectrum, to cope more easily with public transport. The project is based on schemes already running in Devon and Pembrokeshire.
Please see below for details of how to obtain an orange wallet in your Local Authority Area.
You can download information leaflets, inserts and instructions from the side of this page.
Please see below an award winning film produced by the Cambrian Railways Partnership with Arriva Trains Wales which features the Orange Wallet.
