Bus Passes in Wiltshire now valid from 9 am until further notice

Wiltshire Council has confirmed that holders of Wiltshire concessionary bus passes will be able to use their passes for travel from 9am on local bus services on weekdays from 1 May 2024.

Normally, concessionary bus passes for older and disabled people cannot be used to travel before 9.30am on weekdays, but Wiltshire Council has agreed with bus operators to amend this restriction to 9am until further notice, for all journeys that start in the Wiltshire Council local authority area. 

Pass holders will still be able to use their bus pass at any time to travel at weekends.

Passengers intending to use a bus pass will now be able to board the Monday to Friday Salisbury Reds R12 service that leaves at 9.05 am from Stratford Bridge, to travel into Salisbury

There have been temporary trials of this timing but this is the first indication that a more permanent arrangement is proposed.
