Signing because I'm an Aspie too. I need one of these because I can't always handle emergencies since I'm an Aspie. I have proven to my parents that I can't always handle emergencies. Maybe we could become friends I have been looking for an older Aspie Woman to be friends with.

I am autistic and public transport can be very tricky. The lanyards in Airports are super handy and I can see how this would make travelling so much easier.

I'm autistic and commute several times a week, and it's such a difficult thing for me to do. I, too, looked into the Disabled Persons Railcard, and was upset to discover the restrictions. More needs to be done to provide safe spaces for neurodivergent people whilst travelling.

I find travelling on public transport very stressful. As I am autistic mixing with people is difficult and crowds can stress me out
