Kelly welcomes launch of new JAM Card and app

Sinn Féin Councillor Colly Kelly “People with disabilities do not have the same opportunities and face barriers when studying, when looking for a job, when travelling, when purchasing goods and services or simply when accessing information that most of us do not have to face.

Key to breaking down barriers would be having access to public transport .It’s great that the new JAM Card and app will go some way in doing that.

The app designed by the NOW Group allows people with communication barriers such as learning disabilities/difficulties, autism, Asperger’s or a brain injury to alert front line public transport staff discreetly that the card-holder needs Just A Minute of patience and time when interacting with them.
