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 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 contact the Passenger Transport team below 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)
