For those with a learning difficulty, autism or any condition where there can be a communication barrier, 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. JAM cards can be used on Transport for Ireland services including Bus Éireann, Dublin Bus, Go-Ahead Ireland, Iarnród Éireann, TFI Local Link and Luas.

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.

The JAM Card© was created by NOW Group, a multi-award-winning charity and social enterprise supporting people with learning differences and autism into jobs with a future in Ireland.
