Over 60’s Bus Pass
Newport City Council manages the All Wales Concessionary Bus Pass scheme for Newport residents and for residents of Monmouthshire on behalf of Monmouthshire County Council.
Newport and Monmouthshire residents can apply online for an over 60’s bus pass .
Newport residents can also print the Sewta* application form (pdf), complete it at home and take it to a local post office with a passport approved photograph (opens new website) and proof of eligibility of age and address.
Staff at the post office will check the application with you and send the completed form to Newport City Council to be processed.
A passport approved photograph (opens new website) and proof of eligibility of age and address is required with all applications.
Bus passes are issued within 10 – 14 days.
Residents of Monmouthshire who are aged 60 and over can apply for their All Wales Concessionary Bus Pass through the post using the council application form (pdf) which should be completed and returned to the Information Station.
Using your bus pass
You can travel free of charge on almost all local bus services in Wales and, in some cases, to towns just over the border in England.
You are the only person allowed to use your bus pass.
If you allow someone else to use it, your pass could be cancelled and may also lead to legal action.
Travel using your bus pass is subject to the normal regulations and conditions of the bus operators concerned.
Your pass does not give you any rights other than those enjoyed by any fare paying passenger, nor does it entitle you to be carried in preference to other passengers.
We accept no liability for the failure of any bus service to operate or of any operator to accept your bus pass for travel.
If your pass is not accepted please contact the Passenger Transport team for assistance.
Lost, stolen or damaged?
Keep your pass in a safe place where it cannot be bent, twisted or damaged.
If lost, stolen or damaged, a replacement pass will be issued through the Passenger Transport team at a cost of £5.50 (with effect 1 January 2013)
See the South East Wales Transport Alliance (opens new website) for further information.
