Concessionary bus pass hours extended

As a result of coronavirus and news that some supermarkets have started dedicated early morning shopping times for older people or those with a disability, the hours when concessionary bus passes can be used has been extended.

Time restrictions for use of the Diamond Travelcard are relaxed from today so that people can travel free at any time on journeys starting in the West of England Combined Authority and North Somerset areas. This will be reviewed at the end of June.

Usually the bus pass can only be used to travel for free on any local bus for free only after 9am Mondays to Fridays and all day at weekends.
