English Concessionary Bus Pass (a pass issued by a English Local Authority)

English Concessionary passes can be used on our Berwick Town Service. There are some notes to be aware of:

  • If the pass is for a Disabled Person (yellow marking on pass) or has a C+1, then this can be used for free travel at anytime in Berwick.
  • If the pass is not a Disabled pass or does not have C + 1 marked on it then the pass cannot be used until after 9.00am as stipulated by Northumberland County Council.
  • English Passes can be used for a half fare concession on the following cross Border Routes – 235, 236 & 253.
  • An English Pass on our routes 60 and 67 – Berwick to Galashiels, entitles you to travel free, as long as you either start your journey in Northumberland or finish in Northumberland. If you get off the bus in Scotland (i.e. Kelso and get back on in Kelso, then you have to pay a full fare).
  • You are also entitled to travel free to Eyemouth only on Routes 235, 236 & 253. (This is an agreement between ourselves & Northumberland County Council)
