Concessionary Bus Pass
Get a bus to the things you love - for FREE
You don't get many things in life for free, but you could get free travel across the whole West of England area with a Concessionary travel pass. With the cost of fuel going up and up, maybe you'd rather leave the car at home. Perhaps you just fancy going on a trip where you can sit back, relax and look out the window. Or maybe you've got plans with family or friends? Whatever your motivation, just grab your bus pass and start making the most of it!
There are so many possibilities across the area, where will you go first, and who with?
Together with old friends to Bristol Hippodrome? Together with the girls for a dip in Weston Marine Lake? Together with a loved one to Wells Cathedral? Together with the Grandkids to Royal Victoria Park in Bath?
Whatever you love doing, let's get there together.
