Bus Pass Programme

Published: 12 May 2020

Transport for Wales are currently managing the reissue of free bus passes across Wales.

There are currently around 750,000 bus passes in Wales and the current green coloured cards will all expire on 31 December 2019 and not be accepted on buses. Since September we’ve been raising awareness of the changes, and already we’ve received 450,000 applications. With the deadline now fast approaching we’re keen to promote the changes as much as possible to ensure we reach as many people as possible and provide time for people to reapply and receive their new-style cards before the end of the year.

Cardholders can either reapply online at www.tfw.wales/travelcards or by paper, which they can download via our website or pick up a copy from their local council. They can also request a copy in the post by calling our helpline 0300 303 4240.

The new cards offer the same travel benefits for 60s and over and eligible disabled persons.

I have attached the screens visuals which are currently being used on buses across Wales. Would it be possible to display these throughout your outlets to help reach the target audiences and their friends and family members?

There’s also ‘How to videos’ available https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8q_bwWi4Wo (English)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBjwmBvTXh8 (Welsh) – if these could also be shared, that would be amazing.

Here’s a link to the other campaign materials : English - https://tfw.wales/bus-campaign-support
Welsh - https://tfw.wales/cy/cymorth-ymgyrch-bws

We can send you hard copies of any of the materials, such as leaflets and posters or hard copies of the application forms, please let me know and I can arrange straight away. Any support on social media would also be appreciated.

Please get in touch if you require any further information from me. Thank you for your support.
