Apply for a concessionary bus pass

Apply Online (opens new window)

Concessionary pass application portal - Keep a note of the password you create and follow the instructions below of how to apply and what documents you will need. We are currently unable to accept applications for disabled companion passes or taxi vouchers online.

Postal applications and renewals

Currently, paper copies of the English concessionary bus pass application forms or renewal forms, for either the bus pass or taxi vouchers, are currently taking longer to process. Therefore, we suggest you apply online for the standard bus pass, through My Bus Pass (opens new window) for bus passes.

Lost, stolen or damaged bus passes

There is currently a charge of £15 effective from 1 April 2023 to replace a lost, stolen or damaged Wiltshire concessionary bus pass.

You can apply using the link above and you will be sent an email with a link to enable you to pay online - it is important to keep a note of the PASSWORD which you create during the application process.

Alternatively a payment can be made over the telephone if you have a valid debit or credit card. Please telephone 0300 456 0100.

Once payment is received the replacement pass will be sent direct from the printers, using second class post. This can take about 10 working days, Monday to Friday.

The concessionary pass

If you are eligible due to age or qualifying disability, a concessionary travel pass entitles you to free off-peak travel on local services from 9am to 11.59pm, Monday to Friday, all day at weekends and Bank Holidays for holders of a Wiltshire bus pass beginning their journey in the Wiltshire Council area. Note - for holders of bus passes issued elsewhere in the country or Wiltshire holders beginning their journey outside of the Wiltshire Council area, free travel is from 9.30am to 11pm, Monday to Friday, all day at weekends and Bank Holidays

If you move within the Wiltshire Council area, contact (opens new window) as soon as possible with the long number on the front of the current pass, your full name, date of birth and full postal address, including postcodes for both the old and new address.

If you are eligible to the concessionary bus pass due to age and if you continue to use your pass, Wiltshire Council will send you a new pass automatically prior to the expiry date of your current bus pass which you can use immediately. However, if you do not use your pass for an extended period, you remain eligible for a pass but may need to contact Wiltshire Council for your new pass to be issued.

Some people will receive a renewal form approximately one month prior to the expiry date, of the current bus pass, requesting further information or qualifying evidence of disability. Return the renewal with the requested information as soon as possible.

If you have not heard from us after five working days of the expiry date of your old Wiltshire concessionary bus pass, then contact us.

If we have issued a renewed bus pass and it has been posted to the address held on the Wiltshire council concessionary bus pass system, but you moved and did not inform the Wiltshire concessionary bus pass team, see the contact details on this page. There will be a fee of £15 effective from 1 April 2023 to issue a replacement pass. If you contact us within six weeks of the expiry date of the old bus pass because you have not received the new bus pass, we can issue a replacement pass free of charge. However, unfortunately if you do not contact us within six weeks of the old pass expiry date; to request a replacement pass because you are unable to find the new pass, regrettably, you will need to pay £15 for a new bus pass to be issued. Regrettably, we are unable to issue replacement Wiltshire Taxi Vouchers.
