Please make sure you hang onto your zero fare ticket that the driver gives you. From time to time you may be asked to show your ticket to one of our inspectors during your bus journey.

Some local authorities issue passes for carers who are accompanying passengers with pronounced disabilities. These are only valid in the area of the issuing authority and are not national passes. Currently Lancashire does not issue carer’s passes and therefore we are sorry but no carer’s passes are valid on our buses or trams in any circumstances. This is not a transport operator policy but has been decided by the fundholders. Lancashire is currently working with bus operators to develop a manageable companion pass scheme. Please do not be offended if the driver or conductor refuses to give free travel to someone producing a carer’s pass as it is simply not valid in this part of England yet.
