About 250,000 apply for passes

About 250,000 people have applied online for their new free bus passes, three weeks after the relaunch of the application website.

The website went down in September after large numbers of people applied for passes.

About 750,000 over-65s use concessionary cards in Wales; they have until Tuesday 31st December to sign up for new electronic ones.

Transport for Wales (TfW) said it is receiving about 9,000 renewal applications every day.
