Our 'smart' ticket machines check Passes automatically, so please place your Pass on the reader as you get on the bus:

  • Green light and beep
        your Pass is valid - please take your ticket

  • Red light and no beep
        show the Pass to the driver who will check that it is valid

Passes can only be used within the hours shown above. If a red light shows but the Pass is valid, it may be damaged - please contact your local council (see below) to obtain a replacement.

Issue, renewal and replacement of Concessionary Passes is handled by the council in whose area you live:

Compiled by the well-respected transport enthusiast and publisher Mr Geoff Mills this softback A4 sized publication has 84 pages and over 300 photographs.

It includes:
Illustrations of associated companies and acquisitions over the years, a Fleet List, Timetable Covers & History.

We will also send with every book purchased a current fleet list and a selection of local bus timetables.
