There’s still time for passengers across Wrexham to renew their concessionary travel cards.

The green coloured bus passes enable residents over the age of 60 or those who have a qualifying disability in Wales to travel free of charge on all registered bus services that start or finish their journey in Wales.

It is thought that there are in excess of 750,000 cards in circulation across Wales.

The scheme was introduced by the Welsh Government back in 2009, with a lifespan of 10 years encoded into each pass. This means that all current cards are due to expire on December 31st 2019 as they will no longer be recognised by electric readers on buses.



In September Transport for Wales (TfW) launched what it described as “one of Wales’ largest public engagement programmes” encouraging passengers to make sure their bus passes have been renewed ahead of the December 31st deadline.

You can renew your bus pass online here. However paper copies are also available from local councils, such as libraries and community hubs.

Passengers have until December 31st to renew their bus passes. Current passes are valid until that date.

Advice and support with the application process is also available from local councils, Age Cymru and other community organisations. You can find out where you can find help in your local area by contacting our help desk at travelcards@tfw.wales  or call 0300 303 4240.
