Local Assembly Member for Monmouth, Nick Ramsay, has received an update from Transport for Wales regarding the replacement of all current green bus passes with new-style Concessionary Travel Cards between now and 31st December 2019.
The current green bus passes will continue to work until 31 December, but holders of these cards must apply for the new pass as soon as possible online at www.tfw/travelcards or phone 0300 303 4240 for more information.
Speaking today Nick said: “ I’ve been informed by Transport for Wales that all those who have already applied for their replacement card need do nothing more.
“Although the vast majority of applicants will receive their new card by the end of December, there will now be a period of grace until the end of February 2020 where applicants can still use their old-style bus pass while waiting for the new card to arrive.
“ I’d urge all passengers with the old green bus pass who haven’t yet applied for their new card to do so as a matter of urgency to avoid problems when the “period of grace” ends on 29th February 2020.”
