This film and booklet have been produced by the Scottish Dementia Working Group, a collective of people with dementia, who work to support people living with the condition, offering advice and information on how to live well with dementia.




Here they share their experiences – and challenges - of travelling with dementia, offering tips and advice on how to travel safely. These resources are for people with dementia, their families and anyone who is involved in influencing policy for public transport.

"As people with dementia ourselves, we wanted to find safe ways to travel and to be able to share these with others across Scotland." 




Community transport plays a key role in ensuring that older people can access services, social and other opportunities that they both want and need. It's good to go places! is a literature review from the Scottish Government's Joint Improvement Team to see if formal research evidence supports this view.


The British Transport Police are working with transport operators and associated businesses - station coffee shops and supermarkets - to establish dementia friendly stations and services in the North East of England.  


This booklet describes the sensory changes and challenges that can be associated with dementia. It features the experiences of people living with dementia.  


These Safe Journey cards have been developed by First Bus to help people let a driver know that they may need additional help. You can download these cards here.

First have also developed Better Journey cards with different messages. Download Better Journey Cards.
