Concessionary travel bus passes

The English National Concessionary Travel Scheme (ENCTS) provides free off peak travel on scheduled bus services for older people and people with disabilities.

  • ENCTS bus passes allow free travel on local buses during off-peak times throughout Cumbria and anywhere in England
  • off-peak hours are 9.30am to 11pm Monday to Friday and all day at weekends and on bank holidays
  • passengers are issued with a ticket which should show the boarding point and destination requested.  

 If you are issued with a bus ticket in Cumbria which does not show your journey please keep your ticket and telephone 01228 226720 with details.

(If you have a NoWcard and are interested in volunteering as a Mystery Shopper, who check their tickets each time they travel, please telephone 01228 226720)
