Please note that with effect from Monday 3rd September we will no longer accept Buckinghamshire OAP concessionary and disabled passes for travel before 0900 [except where specifically allowed under the formal agreements, such as blind people and noted on the pass] on the two journeys where this is currently allowed by Arriva the Shires within Bucks.
The two journeys concerned are the service 16 journey at 0840 from Steeple Claydon and service 60 at 0833 from Maids Moreton. On both these journeys, concessionary passes will only be accepted from 0900 onwards in line with all other services. Any passenger presenting a free travel pass before 0900 on these journeys should be politely informed it is no longer valid before 0900 as this is a concession that Arriva can no longer afford to grant as it falls outside of the period when we are re-imbursed for the free travel by the Local Authority scheme.
