Bus pass age rise in 2022

The Welsh Government has confirmed it will not implement plans to increase the eligibility age for the concessionary bus pass until April 2022.

Ministers want to gradually increase the age that people are eligible for the pass from 60 to state pension age.

Ken Skates (b. 1976), Minister for Economy and Transport, said the plans would not affect anyone who reaches the age of 60 before April 2022.

Some have expressed concerns about the impact of the policy on the most vulnerable.
