The older person's travel pass is awarded in line with the pensionable age of women, whether you are male or female.
The English National Concessionary Pass gives older people free travel by bus anywhere in England during 'off peak' times. (Mon-Fri 9.30am-11.00pm, and all day on weekends and public holidays).
In addition if you have reached this age and live in the West Midlands you are also entitled to free travel on trains and the Metro tram within the West Midlands county.
Travel passes, further information and an application form are available on the Network West Midlands website. You can apply direct online, or print out an application form if you prefer.
The pass can also be used on Ring and Ride - a door to door funded service for people who find it difficult to use ordinary transport.
