Changes to Concessionary Bus Passes

After numerous questions from constituents, I wanted to make you aware of changes to concessionary bus passes across Wales.

I can confirm that all holders of a concessionary pass will need to reapply before Tuesday, December 31st 2019, when current passes will expire.

The old cards are being replaced by Transport for Wales with ‘Concessionary Travel Cards’. This is due to new-style card readers being installed on buses in the new year which would be unable to read the old cards.

Applying for a new bus pass can be done online or a written form can be requested by emailing:  [email protected] or ringing 0300 303 4240

To reapply, card holders will need the 18-digit card number printed on the front of the green bus pass, date of birth,  postcode and National Insurance number.
