The Devon Companion Bus Pass

The Devon Companion Bus Pass

The Devon Companion Bus Pass will provide free travel for one person traveling with a disabled person who is using their National Bus Pass in the Devon County Council area.

Apply for a Companion Pass

You can apply for a Companion Pass if you:

  • already have a Devon County Council-issued National Bus Pass
  • are aged 11 years or over
  • have a severe disability and would find it extremely difficult to access local bus services without the assistance of a travelling companion.

Before you start

You will need to tell us your National Bus Pass number (ISRN number). This is the long number found on the front of your bus pass.

You will need to be able to provide us with evidence of your disability. This will be one of the following:

  • Disability Living Allowance with the higher rate mobility component together with the higher rate care component.
  • A letter on headed paper from a medical professional confirming a specified medical condition that prevents independent travel, such as uncontrolled epilepsy or severe mental disorder.
  • A letter from Devon County Council’s Children’s or Adult Services confirming registration as blind or registered with a learning disability and unable to travel independently.
  • A war pension with mobility supplement award letter.
  • Personal Independence Payment scoring points in a combination of two or more of the following activities:
    • 8 points for ‘moving around’
    • 10 or 12 points for ‘planning and following a journey’
    • 8 points for ‘communicating’
    • 8 points for ‘reading’
    • 8 points for ‘mixing with other people’
