How to apply for a disabled person's concessionary bus pass with a companion

If you qualify for a concessionary bus pass but cannot travel by bus without needing the help of another person, you may be eligible to be assessed for a Disabled Person's Concessionary bus pass with a companion.

You may be eligible if you have;

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

If you can answer YES to at least one of the above then you qualify to be assessed for a Disabled Person's Concessionary bus pass with a companion. Please ring 07584606772 or email buspasses@swansea.gov.uk to request a disability eligibility assessment form.

We will need to assess you through a medical professional to be certain if you are eligible for the companion bus pass.

If you answer NO to any of the above, unfortunately you do not currently meet the criteria for a Disabled Person's Concessionary bus pass with a companion.
