Currently pensioners who have bus passes can only use them in their Home Country of residence. There is a petition calling for the authorities to  "negotiate reciprocal agreements with the devolved administrations of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland" so that bus passes could be used throughout the UK. The Petition can be viewed here.

Nice to see the numbers signing going up. I came across it in one of the newsfeeds I get which led to me posting here. Perhaps pass the link on to others you know who might find it useful. On the petition web page you can also see the votes by Parliamentary Constituency on the map option which is quite interesting.

Thanks David.

I've always railed against the bus pass being restricted to your country of domicile. Everyones taxes went into central government.

Let's hope the petition gets enough signatures.

Just tried to post it on the CAMC Members Chat Group Facebook group but rejected as political despite the fact that it would probably help a lot of their members if it came to pass!
