You can apply for your over 60 bus pass from the government website at http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Publictransport/BusAndCoachTravel/DG_10036264 This will entitle you to free bus travel anywhere in England. People who live in other parts of the United Kingdom can also apply for their elderly or disabled person's bus pass through the same website.

  • Eligibility criteria for bus passes

You are regarded as eligible for an elderly person's bus pass if you were born before April 6th 1950. This also ties in with the changes that were made to the State Pension age for women in the country.

The bus pass entitles holders to entirely free bus travel at off-peak times anywhere in the country. You will be able to travel on the bus at any time between 9:30am and 11:00pm on a weekday and at any time during the weekends and any public holidays.

  • The process of using a bus pass

All that you will need to do is present it to the bus driver as you board the vehicle. From here, the bus driver will either:

  • Check its validity with their own eyes
  • Check its validity on top of a scanner that is onboard the bus

Once the validity of the pass has been verified, all you need to do now is take a seat and get comfortable until you arrive at your destination.

You can apply for your bus pass on the website listed above by following the link further down on the page. Once you have filled out all the relevant areas of the application, all you will need to do is wait for your bus pass to arrive.
