News from Devon County Council about a relaxation of the rules for the National Bus Pass. Please share…
?National Bus Pass holders in Devon are able to use their pass earlier in the day following the temporary relaxation of restrictions in the county from today (Friday 20 March).
Devon County Council has worked with bus companies to remove the weekday restriction which would normally prevent pass holders from being able to use their pass before 9:30am. Pass holders in the Devon County Council area will now be able to use their bus pass for free travel on local services at any time of day.
The move is in response to fewer schoolchildren and commuters travelling during the coronavirus pandemic, which has freed up capacity on public transport. It will also enable older people to travel to stores which are offering early opening for over-70s.?
