Surrey County Council Consultation on Discretionary Bus Travel Funding
22 Nov 2018
NEW RULES ON NUISANCE TELEPHONE CALLS
20 Sep 2018
A disabled person’s bus pass enables you to travel on buses free of charge at any time on a Saturday, Sunday or bank holiday, and from 9.30am to 11pm on any other day. This is a statutory right under the English National Concessionary Travel Scheme.
Currently Surrey County Council also offers two additional concessions:
Surrey County Council is proposing to reduce this funding.
The proposal for disabled bus pass holders is to move to the national statutory level for free travel between 9.30am and 11pm on weekdays and free travel at weekends and on public holidays.
This means you would no longer be able to travel free at any time of the day for bus journeys solely within Surrey.
The proposal for companion bus pass holders is to move to the national statutory level and withdraw free travel for companions.
This means that if you need a companion in order to travel by bus, your companion would need to pay to travel.
What you can do
Surrey County Council is inviting Surrey residents to comment on these proposals and describe what impact they may have on you or others.
There is an online consultation at
or you can contact Surrey County Council on 03456 009 009 or text 07860 053 465 (Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm) if you require the survey in another format such as Easy Read or large print.
The consultation ends on 4th January 2019.
