I guess most of the people on this site will have a free ‘bus pass. Sadly I don’t but neither do we have any buses out here!

Not used an NCT bus since I  left their employment back in 1967. Gone are the days when it were 6d from Bilborough depot to city on no.16 and the same from Bracebridge drive. Heaven knows how to work it out nowadays. No idea what number goes where. Just hope Sussex bus pass would work, provided I knew where I  were going! :sorry:

When we come to Nottingham, our Cambs  bus passes don't always work on the buses...the drivers don't seem surprised or bothered - they just let us get on the bus anyway.   They have worked on some of the buses we've used, though.

Catfan, So it isn't just that our bus passes are from Cambs, then?  I thought that this  was the reason they didn't work properly in Nottingham

No Margie,

All part of the English National Scheme. Part funded by the govt & yer local council.

I've used mine from the IOW in the south to Cumbria in the north.

A lot of the ticket readers suffer software issues. Nowt wrong with yer pass.

You mention the I O W, CFan , last time we on there, the driver of the little Noddy train said we could use our passes on there as well.  That was in Yarmouth. Behind a mini tractor in open carts would you believe!

Once rode on said Island railway, on round trip from Shanklin to Ryde and back. Banged me 'ed twice.

Enjoyed it though, also the steam heritage at Haven street.

Soon to be replaced by rebuilt London Transport surface line trains dating from the 70s I think.
