AvanchiCard Concession (senior citizen card)

Holders of a Concessionary card issued in the Balliwick of Jersey will be carried free of charge on any service, upon production of this card.  When the card is presented, the driver will issue them with a ticket stating the journey that they are making. Unfortunately, UK Concessionary Passes are not valid in Jersey because there is no agreement between the UK and Jersey governments. However, we do have a wide range of unlimited travel passes which provide excellent value for money if you are planning to travel extensively by bus.
