The Assembly Member for Clwyd South is urging residents in his constituency to make sure they apply for their new bus passes as soon as possible.

Transport For Wales (TfW) has been replacing all over 60s and disabled people’s bus passes with new-style concessionary travel cards.

The original expiry date for the old bus passes was December 31, 2019, but TfW announced a grace period until February 29, 2020

Ken Skates AM is asking people to make sure that they have renewed their bus pass ahead of this month’s deadline.



Mr Skates said: “TfW has extended the grace period for renewals, but it is still important that people who want to renew their bus passes get their applications in as soon as possible if they haven’t already. It’s also important that people only apply once in order to avoid delays.

“If you live in Clwyd South and have applied for your new pass but are still waiting for it, please email ken.skates@assembly.wales with your name and address and details of when you applied and I’ll do my best to help get it sorted out as soon as possible. Alternatively you can call my office.”

The new-style cards offer the same free travel rights and benefits as the current cards and are designed so that they can work as part of an integrated travel network in the future. TfW have so far renewed more than 500,000 passes.

You can apply by visiting www.tfw.wales/travelcards. Paper applications are also available from local councils or by calling 0300 303 4240.
