How does the scheme work
The access wallet contains plastic pockets into which words can be placed to describe where the passenger would like to go, e.g. city centre.
Other information or questions to help make the journey easier for the passenger can also be placed into the wallet. These could include:
- Single or return fare please
- Can you please let me know when we get to my stop?
- Which platform do I catch my train from?
- Emergency contact details
