Free bus travel for older people
If you’re a person in their 60s you can use your bus pass to enjoy free off-peak travel on local buses anywhere in England or Wales, dependent on which country you live in.
Travel by bus - for FREE!
Wherever you live you can go where you want, when you want.
What's the benefit?
It's free and easy. Whether you want to nip into town more often or explore new places, you can. Now instead of shelling-out for petrol and parking, check out the bus times, travel for free and let somebody else do the driving.
It's easier to travel free and go further by bus than ever before. Just hop on and go! And no matter how long your journey lasts within your country, it won't cost you a penny. You may find your pass also lets you make journeys into a neighbouring country.
