What is it

The English National Concessionary Travel Scheme pass (ENCTS) is a national pass. Each travel concession authority, in this case Somerset Council, holds responsibility for administrating the scheme in their own area. Therefore this application is only valid for Somerset residents who are of pensionable age or eligible on the grounds of disability.

The bus pass is free, but there will be an administration charge for replacing a valid pass if it has been lost, stolen, damaged or you have not notified Somerset Transport of your change of address.

Somerset Council offer a discount for ENCTS pass holders on Community Transport and Slinky Demand Responsive Services. Please check details with the relevant provider.
