Using a Concessionary pass
Concessionary passes must be placed on “smart card readers” on the bus to record your journey. If you have a concessionary pass, here are some guidelines on how to use it on our buses:
- As your concessionary pass has a photo on it the driver may ask to see it.
- To use the pass place it on top of the ticket machine. Once you have placed the card on the reader, an amber light will display on the panel.
- This will quickly turn to green and a ticket will be issued from the ticket machine.If you see a red light the driver will tell you what to do next.
- Take your ticket from the ticket machine and then take a seat.
If you are unable to access the card reader, show the driver your pass and they will assist you.
If you don’t have a concessionary pass, and believe you may be eligible, you can apply for one at your local council.
