A change ahead for concessionary travel in West Sussex

From the end of October, West Sussex County Council will no longer include a free Senior Railcard as an alternative to the Older Person’s Bus Pass. People have until 31 October 2020 to apply for the free Senior Railcard option instead of the bus pass.

A county council spokesperson said: “If you currently hold a Senior Railcard provided by West Sussex County Council and decide not to renew it before the end of October, you can use the railcard until it expires. We will contact you about how to take up your free bus pass entitlement.

“There are no changes to the free Disabled Person’s Railcard alternative to the Disabled Person’s Bus Pass, which will remain as an option for anyone with a qualifying disability.”
