The Orange Travel Wallet scheme, is a recently launched initiative to help people with communication difficulties or disabilities to use public transport more easily.

What is the orange wallet?

The orange wallet is an easy way for you to let transport colleague in West Yorkshire know that you have a disability and that you may need additional support, assistance or a bit more time.

It is a bright orange travel wallet that has plastic pockets inside. You can keep your travel pass in the wallet, along with any other messages to let transport staff know what help you need.

Who is it for?

The wallets are for anyone with a disability but may be particularly helpful for people with a non-visible or hidden disability. 

How do I get an orange wallet?

Orange wallets are free, and you can pick one up from your nearest bus station travel centre. If you can’t get to a travel centre, you can call MetroLine on 0113 245 7676 and they will send one by post.
