Disabled bus pass holders can now travel at any time in Warwickshire

Leamington Editorial 26th Jul, 2023   0

DISABLED bus passes are set to become more flexible in Warwickshire.

Pass holders will be able to travel at any time using their passes for journeys that start within Warwickshire from August 1.

This will enable them to get to work, school and college using their bus pass, which has previously not been possible as they were only valid from 9am.

This follows a decision by Warwickshire County Council’s Cabinet in April to introduce all-day travel for holders of disabled person’s passes below state retirement age, for a trial period of 12 months.




The disabled person’s bus pass is available to anyone who has a qualifying disability, is under state retirement age, and lives within Warwickshire.
