What do you get?

  • Elderly Bus Pass
  • Disabled Bus Pass*
Based on your age or disability you can check and apply if you are entitled to a free bus pass giving free off-peak travel. *Availability based on your local authority.

'Off-peak' is between 9.30am and 11pm Monday to Friday and all day at weekends and on public holidays. Local authorities may offer further benefits to their residents, such as free travel outside off-peak times or reduced tram or rail travel. However, these will apply only for travel in the local area, not elsewhere in England.
