Concessionary travel passes

You are entitled to a national concessionary travel pass if you have either:

  • reached state pension age
  • an eligible disability

The pass allows you to enjoy free off-peak travel on local buses anywhere in England.

Free travel is available:

  • Monday to Friday: 9.30am to 11pm
  • Weekends and public holidays: all day

Certain services are excluded such as night buses which charge a premium fare. Please check with the relevant operator.

In addition to the national benefits, the Nottinghamshire scheme includes free travel on the Nottingham tram (NET).

To receive free tram travel make sure you scan your bus pass before boarding the tram. Tram inspectors will be in operation and may ask to rescan your pass to check it was done before boarding.

We administer this scheme in Nottinghamshire. If you live in the county you will need to apply to us for a new pass or to renew an old one.

If you live in the City of Nottingham please visit their Citycard web pages.
