What transport concessions could I get as an older person?

The main national public transport concessions available to older people are:

  • Free older person's bus pass means you can travel free on local buses in England.
  • The Senior Railcard is an annual savings card. You buy it for a one-off cost each year and it will allow you to make big savings on most rail fares in the UK.
  • London Freedom Pass gives you free or discounted travel for London residents across London transport networks, including trams, national rail, the underground, river services, and buses.
  • Various transport concessions available to disabled older people.

It’s also worth contacting the individual coach and train operators to see if they offer discounts for older people. For example, National Express offers a Senior Coachcard for people who are 60 and over. It costs £12.50 and offers a third off your travel throughout the year.

Some local authorities offer concessions that apply to local public transport. Contact your local council for more information about what they offer.
