Apply for a concessionary travel pass

Check your eligibility

To apply for a concessionary travel pass from us you need to live in Nottinghamshire.

If you live in Nottingham City please visit the city council's Citycard web pages.


You no longer receive a pass automatically at the age of 60. Instead, the qualifying age is now linked to the state pension age.

To see when you will qualify for a free pass on age grounds, look at the state pension age calculator on the GOV.UK website.

  • have a disability, or have suffered an injury, which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on your ability to walk

  • have a learning disability - a state of arrested or incomplete development of mind which includes significant impairment of intelligence and social functioning, or
  • would have an application to drive a motor vehicle refused due to your disability.
