The Telford and Wrekin Concessionary Travel Scheme offers a number of travel opportunities to residents who are age-eligible, or people with disabilities who qualify under certain criteria.
The scheme includes the new English Concessionary Travel Pass, which allows free travel on local bus services throughout England between 9.30am and 11pm on Mondays to Fridays, and at any time on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.
If you live permanently in Telford and Wrekin, and you feature within at least one of the groups listed below, you may be entitled to concessionary travel:
- since 6 April 2010, the age of eligibility for concessionary travel for women has been their State Pension age, and for men it has been the State Pension age of a woman born on the same day; if you are unsure from when you will qualify for concessionary travel, please visit the GOV.UK website to calculate your State Pension age (remember to tick 'female', even if you are male)
- you are registered blind or are partially-sighted, having either total or a high degree of visual loss
- you are profoundly or severely deaf and/or without speech
- you have a disability or injury that has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on your ability to walk
