Companion passes

We will provide, on application, a companion pass to severely disabled residents of the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole area who are only able to access local bus services with the assistance of a travelling companion.

The pass will bear the "C+" logo and will entitle a companion to free bus travel when travelling with the bus pass holder on journeys that start within the BCP area.

For journeys starting outside this area, travel companions will be required to pay a fare. It does not need to be the same travelling companion for all journeys undertaken.

Apply for a companion pass

If you would like to apply for a bus pass that includes a travel companion you will need to complete a travel companion application form in addition to the bus pass application form. 

Section B of this form needs to be completed by a medical professional involved in your care.

If you already have an older or disabled person's bus pass and wish to apply for the companion enhancement to be added, please complete the travel companion application form and send it to You do not need to reapply for the bus pass.

Please read the terms and conditions for more information about using your bus pass.
