Older person Freedom Pass

The older persons Freedom Pass is funded by Redbridge Council and gives free travel on most public transport in London 24 hours a day (after 9.30 on most National Rail services within the London Area), including all day at weekends and on public holidays. The pass can also be used to travel on local bus services in the rest of England under the terms of the Concessionary Bus Travel Act 2007.



You can apply for the Older Persons Freedom Pass if you meet the age criteria and your sole or principal residence is in the London Borough of Redbridge.
