Freedom Pass for older and disabled people
A Freedom Pass gives people free travel on buses, trains, trams, tubes and Docklands Light Rail services in London. It is paid for by us to help older and disabled people get around.
Passes for older people
Passes for older people are available from all post offices in Barnet and are valid for five years. When you apply for the pass at the post office you will need to take with you:
- your existing travel pass (if you have one)
- proof of your name, age and address
- two passport-style photographs.
The earliest date you can get your Freedom Pass will depend on when you were born. Try the online calculator on the London Councils website to find out when you will be eligible for a Freedom Pass, see link on right.
From 1 November 2012, Freedom Passes will be available to everyone from when they reach 60 years of age.
Passes for disabled people
Passes for disabled people are available from the Assisted Travel Team. If you are disabled and think that you qualify for a Freedom Pass you need to complete an online application form. If you would like to talk to someone phone the Assisted Travel Team.
