What do I need to do to renew my older person’s bus pass?
You can renew your bus pass online.
If your pass has already expired or is due to expire in the next 28 days, you will need to register for an online bus pass account to renew your pass, unless you already have an online account. Register or log in to your online account.
You will need to review the contact details we have on record for you, and request to update these details if there are any changes. We also need your National Insurance Number and at least one telephone number – you may be asked to provide these details, if we don’t have them already.
To renew online you will need your:
- current bus pass
- an email address
- National Insurance number

Frequently asked questions
By law, a concessionary bus pass cannot be issued for more than five years. We are also taking this opportunity to confirm that the details we hold for you are correct.
Your renewal code is unique to you, and links the details we already hold for you, to your new online account. You need to look up your renewal code to create an online account.
The renewal code lookup can be found on the homepage of the online bus pass system. Enter the long number on the front of your current bus pass to retrieve your code.
Your password should contain at least 8 characters and combine uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols.
For data security reasons and to reduce the risk of fraud, it is not possible to create more than one bus pass account with the same email address. If you share an email address with someone who has already created an account you can either:
- Use a different email address to set up an account
- Create a unique user name
- Contact the concessionary travel team
Go online to update your details. You will be asked to add proof of your change of name and/or address. Any change to your personal details needs to be approved by the concessionary travel team, before you can log back into your account and renew your pass.
Alternatively, you can contact the concessionary travel team and we will update your details for you.
