Companion – personal assistance
In Gothenburg, if you are a fare-paying disabled person with a mobility services pass, a companion may travel with you free of charge. In other parts of the region, companions pay the standard fare for the journey.
A companion to a person with impaired vision may travel free of charge in the Västtrafik Gothenburg region (Ale, Alingsås, Gothenburg, Härryda, Kungsbacka, Kungälv, Lerum, Mölndal, Orust, Partille, Stenungsund, Tjörn and Öckerö) and in some parts of the Västtrafik Fyrbodal region (Lysekil, Munkedal, Sotenäs, Strömstad, Tanum and Uddevalla).
Västtrafik plans to introduce a companion card by the end of 2015. The municipalities will offer this card to those with a disability. The companion card is planned to be valid as follows: “A companion on general public transport may travel free of charge with a fare-paying disabled person with a companion card.”
