    I believe they do need a copy of the PIP letter, partly so they know how long to issue the bus pass for. It may be that you need a career with you when traveling so they might issue a bus pass + 1 traveller. 
    If you do not meet the criteria for a bus pass I believe you can appeal to the local passenger transport executive, sending them the details of your disability they seem to have more discretion & may issue you with a pass, even if you don't meet the PIP criteria

    You can also get a bus pass if you'd be refused a bus pass on medical grounds for reasons other than drugs or alcohol. You may need a letter from your GP.
