Concessionary bus passes

Some people are eligible for free or discounted travel on local bus services. From 27 July, you are required to wear a face covering when using public transport in Wales.

Free travel on local bus services in Wales for the over 60s or people with an eligible disability

Bus passes across Wales are being replaced with a new-style Transport for Wales branded concessionary travel card.

The former green passes can no longer be used, and you will now be expected to pay bus fares if you do not have a new Transport for Wales pass. If you have received your new Transport for Wales pass please cut up your former green bus pass and only use your new one. If you have been unable to renew your bus pass and still only have your green bus pass, please ring 01792 636377 or email buspasses@swansea.gov.uk.

Applying for a concessionary bus pass is simple. Please visit www.tfw.wales/travelcards for more information on how to apply on age grounds (60 and over) and on grounds of disability.

If you need assistance from another person when travelling for all or some of your journeys you can apply for a companion bus pass. We will need to assess whether you meet the criteria please ring 01792 636377 or email buspasses@swansea.gov.uk 

You may be eligible for a companion bus pass if you have:

  • Challenging behaviours, with a need to be supervised at all times
  • Severe cognitive and mental impairments (including people who have no awareness of risk and limited ability to plan and follow a journey)
  • A combination of visual and hearing or visual and speech loss that prevents independent mobility, or
  • Difficulties using a wheelchair independently
