Transport for Wales are currently managing the reissue of free bus passes across Wales
Here’s an update on the renewal programme TfW is managing on behalf of all 22 local councils in Wales.
There are currently around 750,000 bus passes in Wales and the current green coloured cards will expire on 31 December 2019 and not be accepted on buses. Since September TfW has been raising awareness of the changes, and already they have received 450,000 applications. With the deadline now fast approaching they are keen to promote the changes as much as possible to ensure they 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 the TfW website or pick up a copy from their local council. They can also request a copy in the post by calling the helpline on 0300 303 4240.
The new cards offer the same travel benefits for 60s and over and eligible disabled persons.
There are also ‘How to videos’ available here (in English) and here in (Welsh)
