Frequently Asked Questions?

I have a local authority concessionary bus pass - does this make me eligible for a Disabled Persons Railcard?

No

Holding a concessionary bus pass does not, in itself, entitle a person to qualify for a Disabled Persons Railcard. Concessionary bus passes are administered by local authorities who have the flexibility to use their discretion when issuing passes. So whilst many of the people who have a bus pass may be candidates for a Railcard, there are many who would not (for example, people with short term illnesses and conditions). Therefore we cannot accept the bus pass alone as grounds to issue a Railcard.
