How to use your pass

To follow any changes to this service, visit the Council Service Updates page.

Using your pass on buses

Your North Lincolnshire concessionary fare pass is valid on all local registered bus services in both North Lincolnshire and the rest of England.

In North Lincolnshire you can use your pass at any time of the day. You can also catch a bus from anywhere in North Lincolnshire and travel to surrounding areas. However, if you get off this bus and it is outside North Lincolnshire, then you cannot use your pass to travel again until after 9.30am and before 11pm on a Monday to Friday.

Example: If you get a bus from Scunthorpe to Hull at 7.35am you would arrive at Hull interchange at 8.22am. You would have to pay the fare if you then travelled on another bus before 9.30am.

You can use your pass anytime in any area of England on a Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holiday.

You cannot use your pass on National Express Coaches, national trains, London Underground services, trams or ferries.

Using your pass on trains

Your North Lincolnshire pass is only valid for use on local trains. These are Scunthorpe to Grimsby/Cleethorpes and Barnetby to Gainsborough or Lincoln and any stations in between. Your journey must start or end within North Lincolnshire.

A pass with a one train symbol allows a reduction in standard class travel on local trains.

A pass with two train symbols allows free travel in standard class on local trains.

Elderly passes are issued with a one train symbol only. A two train pass may be issued for limited disabilities.

If you require any further information please contact public transport, your Local Link or the Shopmobility office when you make your bus pass application.

A pass with the ‘+C’ companion element allows the companion a reduction in standard class travel on local trains regardless of whether the pass holder has one or two train symbols.
