**Changes to concessionary travel cards**
You will need to change your old-style card to the new-style between September and 31 December 2019. To change your card, you will need to apply for a new Concessionary Travel Card.
You'll be able to apply for your new-style Concessionary Travel Cards, which replaces your current bus pass, from Wednesday 11 September 2019.
All current green coloured bus passes will still be accepted and are valid until 31 December 2019.
Residents are advised not to panic but to apply for their new-style card in plenty of time before the end of the year to ensure they can continue to receive the benefits of concessionary travel. The old-style cards will not be recognised by electronic readers on buses after 31 December 2019.
The new-style cards offer the same free travel rights and benefits as the current cards. The new cards are designed so that they can work as part of an integrated travel network in the future.
