Concessionary Bus Travel

Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service

You can use your Welsh Concessionary Bus Pass on all local bus services in Wales. You cannot use your Welsh pass for travel in England and you cannot use your English pass for travel in Wales.

Please be aware that your concessionary pass cannot be used on coach services such as National Express or Megabus. National Express do offer a Senior Coachcard for people over 60, which you can find more details here by clicking here.

More information on concessionary travel can be found here.

The Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service is for patients across Wales who are unable for medical reasons, to make their own way to and from their hospital appointments.

It is a vital resource to help those patients who need and rely on it and it should not be used as an alternative to other means of getting to appointments.

Please note that a need for treatment does not automatically imply a need for transport. There is an eligibility process that all patients are required to go through to ensure the service can be offered to them.

For patients who are found non eligible, our Alternative Transport Team can discuss transport options in your area, that may be able to help.
