Transport for Ireland are continuing our journey to become JAM Card friendly. The Jam Card will assist customers using the public transport system and make their experience as stress-free as possible.
What is JAM Card and who is it for?
JAM Card allows people with a communication barrier to tell others they need ‘Just A Minute’ discreetly and easily.
The JAM Card© was created by NOW Group, a social enterprise that supports people with learning difficulties and autism into jobs with a future and their service users told them that they would like a way to relay to people that they need a little extra time or patience.
There are 3 message options to choose from:
- Please be patient, I have autism
- Please be patient, I have a learning disability/difficulty
- Please be patient, I have a condition
For those with a learning difficulty, autism or any condition where there can be a communication barrier, the JAM Card allows users to relay to others that they may need a little extra time in a simple, effective non-verbal manner. The JAM Card is useful when on public transport, in a retail or any other customer-facing environment.
