Concessionary Fares & Discounted Travel

English National Concessionary Travel Scheme

Free bus passes for senior and disabled people

A national scheme that allows concessionary bus pass holders to travel for free on local buses anywhere in England between the hours of 9.30am to 11pm on weekdays and at any time at the weekend and on bank holidays.

The passes are available free to people aged over 60* and for people with disabilities and can be obtained from Surrey County Council. For full details see the Surrey County Council website:

Free bus passes for senior and disabled people

* To qualify for a senior bus pass the age of eligibility is now a woman’s pension age for both men and women so could be between 60 and 66 depending on year of birth. Please use the age checker on the above website.

If you find it impossible to travel on your own you can apply for a Companion Permit. It enables both you and a companion to travel at half fare. If you think you qualify for a companion permit please contact your local Social Services.
