Plus one on Purple Tuesday

10 months ago Thu 21st Oct 2021

Free bus travel for companions of Disabled Concessionary Card Holders on Tuesday 2 November

We are supporting international Purple Tuesday (2 November) by offering all disabled concessionary cardholders free travel to a plus one of their choice.

Purple Tuesday focuses on changing experiences for disabled people and thinking about their needs year round, whether that’s catching public transport, shopping or going out for dinner.

Some concessionary cardholders will already have a plus one on their card – these cards say ‘+C’ on them - these passengers will be allowed to have two people travelling with them free on Purple Tuesday. Normal concessionary time restrictions will still apply.

Purple Tuesday focuses on changing the customer experience for disabled people. It is about creating a step change improvement in the awareness of the value and needs of disabled customers. It is about making the customer experience accessible.

We are offering free travel on all our buses for any companion travelling with a Disabled Concessionary Card Holder. This means the card holder and companion can enjoy the day together. 

Free travel will also be included on all Metrobus services.

How does my companion claim free travel?

Show your disabled concessionary card to the driver and advise them who your chosen companion is. 

What happens if I already have a Plus Companion (+C) on my Disabled Concessionary Card?

You are still entitled to your normal free plus one companion but on Tuesday 2 November you can have a second companion travelling free with you. 

Are there any restrictions?

The normal terms and conditions of your Disabled Concessionary pass will still apply. If you are unaware of the travelling restrictions please contact your local council or call us on 01273 886200.

This offer only applies for all Brighton & Hove Buses and Metrobus services.

This offer also applies on 2 November only.
