The JAM Card (Just A Minute)

 

What is JAM Card and who is it for?

JAM Card allows people with a communication barrier tell others they need ‘Just A Minute’ discreetly and easily.

Transport for Ireland alongside Bus Éireann, Dublin Bus, Go-Ahead Ireland, Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail, Local Link and Luas are beginning the journey to becoming JAM Card friendly. The Jam Card will assist customers using the public transport system and make their experience as stress-free as possible.

We have JAM cards here in the office and if you wish to receive one, contact us at services@imnda.ie. The cards we have in available say ‘please be patient, I have a condition’.

The JAM Card allows users to relay to others that they may need a little extra time in a simple, effective non-verbal manner. The JAM Card is useful when on public transport, in a retail or any other customer facing environment.

The JAM Card© was created by NOW Group, a social enterprise that supports people with learning difficulties and autism into jobs with a future and their service users told them that they would like a way to relay to people that they need a little extra time or patience.
