Bus fares to be capped at £2 for those not eligible for free bus pass

Other economically vulnerable groups are also eligible for the free bus pass, including those who have a long-term disability, illness or injury.

People who are affected by any of these conditions would qualify for a disabled person’s bus pass.

Discounts on bus travel are also available for people who are diagnosed blind, partially sighted, deaf or unable to speak.

Anyone who does not have use of their arms or legs, or does not have arms or legs at all, can also get a free bus pass.
