New rules require people to wear a face covering or mask on public transport – and you can be fined up to £100 for not doing so. But, if you have a medical condition or disability that makes it difficult for you to wear one, you can self-certify as being exempt from having to wear one (scroll down for more details on the face mask exemptions).
To ensure disabled people don’t get fined when they’re genuinely exempt, we’ve created an exemption card.
Our mask exemption card comes on a lanyard or badge clip. It is a durable, portable pass that you can wear around your neck or pinned to your coat or top while travelling on buses, trams, coaches, taxis and trains.
It provides drivers and staff with immediate and simple-to-understand information regarding your mask exemption.
The bright red lanyard has ‘MASK EXEMPT’ written in white capital letters so it is easy to see. The credit card-sized ID badge further explains your mask exemption as being due to a “disability/health condition”. Both can be shown and read at a safe distance.
There is also the option to purchase the ID card with a badge clip instead of a lanyard, which can be worn on shirts, tops or coats.
The pocked-sized design of the ID, badge clip and lanyard means it can be stored in your coat or bag making it easy to access and put around your neck or pin to you while travelling.
The lanyard is 20mm wide and made of recycled materials. It has a ‘safety break’ clip that detaches in case the lanyard gets caught or tangled whilst you are travelling. It can also be easily reclosed. The ID card comes in an open-faced ID cardholder.
