Check your bus pass is in date.

Devon County Council is appealing for roughly 4000 National Bus Pass Holders to get in touch as they might be travelling on buses without an updated pass.

Following card re-issues earlier this year, a large number have returned as ‘undeliverable’, sparking concerns that current bus users may be using expired, and invalid, passes. Councillor Stuart Hughes, Devon Council Cabinet Member for Highways, said: “Some residents may not yet have realised their old pass has expired and is no longer valid. This is most likely due to a change of address during the last five years, but they are yet to inform Devon County Council of it. This means the pass cannot be sent to them.”

If you or anyone you know used to have a National Bus Pass but have not received a new one, call 01392 383688 or email
