Senior bus pass

If you live in England and are of a pensionable age, you are entitled to a bus pass giving free travel on local buses anywhere in England.

The age you become eligible is tied to changes in the state pension age for women. This affects both men and women.

You can find out if you are eligible, use the link below. There you can find out when you will be eligible. Visit GOV.UK to find out your pensionable age.

Journeys must start from 9.30am and until 11pm Monday to Friday. Saturday, Sunday, and all bank holidays the pass is valid all day.

We have funded an addition to this scheme permitting residents of Hull to use their bus pass anytime of the day for journeys starting within the city boundary.
