Travel Pass scheme to extend to residents age 21 in Wales
Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Ken Skates AM, has announced that the My Travel Pass scheme will continue until at least March 2020, and will extend to all people aged 16 to 21 resident in Wales.
The scheme is currently open to those aged 16 to 18 resident in Wales and offers a third discount on bus travel for any journey in Wales.
The extension should begin in early December 2018. Current 16 to 18 pass holders do not need to do anything right away, but should reapply for the scheme shortly before their pass is due to expire.
It is hoped the scheme will encourage bus usage for more journeys, leading to reduced congestion and air pollution in Wales’ towns and cities.
