Concessionary Bus Pass FAQs

8. Do You Offer Companion Passes?

A companion endorsement is available for any eligible person who can’t travel alone, this allows a companion to travel free of charge with the card holder. You will need to provide a letter from a Health Practitioner to confirm that you are unable to travel on public transport unaided.  Holders of a pass endorsed “companion” may be accompanied by a companion free of charge.

A holder of a permit endorsed “companion” may start a bus journey on their own. But if accompanied by a companion, both permit holder and companion must board and get off at the same point. No companion may obtain a concession under the Scheme except when accompanying the holder of a valid permit endorsed “companion”.

Please be aware that allowing a companion to travel free, on the same card is an enhancement to the statutory scheme offered by Buckinghamshire Council. It is only guaranteed for journeys that start within the Buckinghamshire Council area (not including Milton Keynes). Other local authorities may not offer a similar benefit for journeys starting in their area.
