New bus pass to be renewed automatically
Residents in Telford and Wrekin whose bus passes are due to expire are being advised that they will be renewed automatically.
This applies to approximately 12,000 people, the vast majority of whom are pensioners.
Bus passes that expire between January and March are in the process of being issued with no need for anyone to fill in any forms or submit any photographs.
Lee Higgins, Telford & Wrekin Council’s Customer Services Manager, said: “The last time bus passes needed to be renewed people had to fill in forms and submit photographs but we have scrapped all that.
“Our system now generates new passes automatically at least a fortnight before the current pass expires so pass holders don’t need to do anything, just wait for a new pass.”
