Older people in Lancashire have been urged to check whether they need to renew free bus passes before they expire this spring.

Around 300,000 NoWcard bus passes in Lancashire, Cumbria, Blackburn with Darwen and Blackpool expire this year, with most needing to be renewed by the end of March.

Lancashire County Council has sent letters to people whose passes expire in March or April explaining the renewal process.

NoWcard holders have been urged to check their travel smartcard in case it needs renewing.

If you haven’t received a letter or haven’t applied for a new pass, call 0845 058 1096 or visit

Passes not renewed before the expiry date will no longer be valid for free travel on bus services.
