The concessionary fare scheme is a great deal for the elderly and some people with disabilities. It allows free travel all over England, including Wilts & Dorset.
Once you have got your pass you can jump on and off buses as much as you like - a quick pop to the shops or a day out to the coast, visit historic Salisbury or go through the New Forest. Most areas have time restrictions and these can vary from area to area.
Sadly, ENCT passes are not valid on the Stonehenge Tour and New Forest Tour. Also the scheme doesn't extend to visitors from Scotland, Wales and the Channel Islands.
The bus pass provides the pass holder with free off peak travel on local bus services anywhere in England between the hours of 9.30am and 11pm Monday to Friday and all day at weekends and bank holidays. Additionally in Wiltshire it gives free travel on buses after 11pm, where these operate. Also on certain infrequent bus services it can be used from an earlier time than 9.30am.How to Apply
