This website (previously ASDinfoWales) belongs to and is run by the National Autism Team, which is funded by Welsh Government. It is one of the resources which helps the Team achieve their aim to improve the lives of autistic people in Wales.

The Orange Wallet is one of a range of collaborative national projects funded by the Welsh Government as part of the All Wales ASD Strategy.

It is intended to help people, especially those who are autistic, to cope more easily with public transport. The project is based on schemes already running in Devon and Pembrokeshire.

Please see below for details of how to obtain an orange wallet in your area if you live in Wales.

You can download information leaflets, inserts and instructions from the side of this page.

Please see below an award winning film produced by the Cambrian Railways Partnership with Arriva Trains Wales which features the Orange Wallet, which is now managed by Transport for Wales.
