Renewing your Bus Pass.  The simplest method is to ring 01296 873011 when you will speak to a robot – you will need your old pass in front of you to give the information required.  If there are no changes to your details, eg address and all your responses are accepted, the new pass should be with you within 10 days.  If any problem arises, you will automatically be switched through to another line where you will be able to speak to a real human!  Alternatively, see below.
