Bus passes - older and disabled people
Pensioners and some eligible disabled persons are able to travel free of charge on all local bus services throughout Wales.
Who can have a pass?
You are entitled to a pass if you are a permanent Isle of Anglesey resident and are:
- aged 60 or over or
- blind or partially sighted or
- profoundly or severely deaf - without speech or
- disabled or with an injury having a substantial and long term adverse impact on your ability to walk
- without arms or long term loss of the use of both arms or
- with a learning disability, that is, a state of arrested or incomplete development mind which includes significant impairment of intelligence and social funtioning or
- unable to be granted, if an application was made, a licence to drive a motor vehicle under Part III of the Road Traffic Act 1988, pursuant to section 92 of the act (physical fitness) otherwise than on the grounds of persistent misuse of drugs or alcohol.
Require a carer to travel?
A severely disabled person may request a companion pass so that they would have the assistance of one companion when making a journey. A person is eligible to receive a companion pass where medical opinion advises that they are unable to make a journey by public transport themselves. However, the effect of the disability need not be such that the pass holder will require the help of a companion on every journey. Medical evidence is required to confirm eligibility.
How much does the pass cost?
There will be no charge for issuing the pass, although Isle of Anglesey County Council will make a charge for replacing a lost pass.
