Free Bus Travel for 16 to 24-year-olds

A Plaid Cymru government will provide free bus travel for young people between 16 and 24-years-old and retain free bus passes for the over 60s.

The economic consequences of Covid-19 are falling disproportionately on our young people. Free travel, administered via a smartcard, will help overcome barriers to education, training, and job opportunities.

Free travel on public transport services operated by the Welsh Government will ingrain a pattern of use for life and contribute to Wales’s environment and climate change goals. Increased use of public transport will reduce traffic pollution and congestion. It will also contribute to the sustainability of local bus routes and the viability of many rural communities.
