A group of our members from North and East Cornwall worked with their local transport group to create a Transport Access Pass.
It is a small credit card size wallet with a range of inserts that can be changed.
We can put our own personal information in it.
The Access Pass is recognised by local bus drivers.
The bus drivers know that the Access Pass describes the support that we need to travel safely on public transport.
We think that the Transport Access Pass could be used for lots of different things not just transport.
We hope to develop our Access Pass Project.
In December 2007 Cornwall People First was presented with an award by Valuing People South West for making good accessible communication.
Anyone can ring or e-mail the office to ask for a Pass.
The Access Pass is free.
