Dear Barbara

Thank you for your enquiry regarding a list of all National Express and other non-TFL routes accepting the National Concessionary Travelbus passes.

Your request has now been considered, but I regret to advise you that unfortunately we do not hold a full list as you have requested. However, I can advise you that most intercity coach services like the National Express will not accept the National Concessionary Travel Scheme bus passes. You can check if they will accept the travel scheme by asking the Bus Operators (drivers) or by calling them, see the last weblink below for telephone numbers.

Please see the link below to advice on Transport for London's (TFL) website regarding using concessionary travel pass within London.


There is also useful information on our website (see link below) on restrictions within and outside London for using the concessionary travel scheme as well as contact numbers for the different coach/bus/train services where the scheme may be accepted.




I hope this helps. In the mean time, if you have any queries or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Many thanks
