Concessionary Bus Passes

Older Persons Bus Pass

The older persons bus pass entitles the holder to concessionary travel on buses, trains and other forms of local public transport. To be eligible for a bus pass the applicant must be aged over 60 and resident in the area


Disabled Bus Pass

A bus pass (or other travel concession) is available to local citizens if they are aged 60 and over, they are physically disabled, they have a learning difficulty or they would be refused a driving licence under section 92 of the Road Traffic Act 1988. Eligibility is automatic if the applicant is already in receipt of other services as a result of their age/disability.


From April 2008, people living in the Whitby area over the age of 60 and those with certain disabilities will be eligible for a bus pass giving them free bus travel across the whole country. Contact Scarborough Council for details.
