Passes and permits

Passes and permits

There are many passes that can help with travel. Freedom Passes give older and disabled people free travel on buses and London public transport, and Blue Badge permits allow disabled drivers to park more easily. Disabled and older people can also get discounted travel, for example with a railcard for train travel, or using the taxi-card scheme, or others. Some people may also be able to get free road tax.
