IoM Transport adopts initiative to support passengers with extra needs

People with hidden disabilities are being encouraged to get a special lanyard, wristband or pin to wear while travelling around the Island.

Isle of Man Transport has adopted the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower scheme to discreetly show transport staff that a person has extra needs.

Hannah Lo Bao is the customer experience manager and says it's about giving people confidence and making journeys easier:


Lanyards, wristbands and pins are available from the Welcome Centre at the Sea Terminal, Port Erin bus and railway station and Ramsey bus station.

They're also available from the Manx Deaf Society and Hospice Isle of Man.
