Service summary

The Freedom Pass enables residents with a disability to travel free within the Freedom Pass boundary on London's public transport.

What is a Freedom Pass?

The Freedom Pass provides unlimited free travel within the Freedom Pass boundary on London's public transport network during off peak hours. This includes buses, tubes, National Rail, Docklands Light Railway and Trams. It can also be used outside London on local bus services in England (as per The English National Bus Scheme), although disabled people with a Discretionary Freedom Pass cannot use this service.

Am I eligible?
