I can't do buses. Even though I qualify for a free bus pass now, I haven't applied for it

Do you get free bus pass'es in brum,in telford they charge,50 pounds for six months,90 pounds for twelve ,or pay half that and only pay half fare on the bus.

My wife and I get over 60s bus passes Jo. but you can't use them before 9.30am. So I buy an earlybird ticket for 27.50 per month.that allows mr to get to work for 8 O'clock. The rest of the time its free.

The only thing like that here is a one day rider 7 .50 takes you anywhere in telford all day after nine o clock,or a week rider don't know the price of those.Bus fares are expensive here.

As i say over sixty passes are free (at the moment). we can get as far as Dudley, Wolverhampton Coventry. so not bad.

We expect to be charged extra to breathe soon Jo

I must say I didn't get my pass for a few months after I was 60. They were sending them out in batches.
