Helping Hand is a free card scheme for passengers who may need extra assistance on buses, or require the driver to be made aware of something discreetly without having to verbally communicate it.
Cards, for example, can let the driver know if a passenger needs to be told when a stop is reached, if they need the driver to wait until they are seated or if they require a priority seat. It is possible to create a bespoke card if none of the existing cards fit your needs.
