Denbighshire County Council is reminding residents that applications for concessionary bus passes need to be submitted to Transport for Wales.
Transport for Wales are working with local councils and Welsh Government to roll out new-style Concessionary Travel Cards and these cards will replace the current green 'bus passes' across Wales. The official deadline is 31 December 2019.
However, Transport for Wales have announced a two month grace after the deadline for those needing to make an application or who have already submitted their applications. Old and new cards will be accepted by operators during the first two months of 2020.
The new-style cards offer the same free travel rights and benefits as the current bus passes. The new cards are designed so that they can work as part of an integrated travel network in the future.
Advice and support with the application process is also available from your local council, Age Cymru and other community organisations. Find out where you can find help in your local area by contacting the Transport for Wales help desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0300 303 4240.
Residents are encouraged to apply: www.tfw.wales or ask a friend, family member or someone they trust to apply online on their behalf.
Paper application forms are available online or by e-mailing contact details to email@example.com.
In the meantime, existing green bus passes are valid for travel until 31 December 2019.
