Bus operators have had to change the way that some of their services operate to meet the guidelines set out by the government in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.

We have made changes to the times you can use your bus pass in Torbay in response to the coronavirus situation pandemic.

Bus passes

Bus Pass holders in the Torbay area will be able to use their bus pass for free travel on local services at any time of day from today (Friday 20 March 2020). Bus passes are normally not valid until 9:30am on weekdays but, in association with the bus operators, we are temporarily lifting all time restrictions.

This means older and disabled bus pass holders can access essential services and also take advantage of early opening arrangements shops may be offering during the coronavirus situation.

There is greater capacity on the network at these times, allowing pass holders to exercise social distancing measures on buses with fewer passengers.

Any passengers experiencing issues or problems using their bus pass should call 01803 207766 or email buspass@torbay.gov.uk.
