Disabled person's bus pass

Herefordshire Council offers some residents free travel on local bus services. Free bus travel with these passes is available between 9.30am and 11pm on Monday to Friday, and all day on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays. You can travel:

  • Across Herefordshire and the rest of England
  • Between Herefordshire and places in Wales, provided that each bus journey starts or finishes in Herefordshire
  • Between Presteigne and Knighton in Powys

Disabled person's bus passes are only available to Herefordshire residents of bus fare paying age (five years old +) who either have a permanent disability or a disability that is expected to last at least 12 months. Before starting your application, you can check that you qualify for any one of the eligibility categories of disability issued by the Department for Transport.

Any Herefordshire resident who qualifies for a disabled person's bus pass on the grounds of disability, and because of that disability is unable to travel on a bus without the assistance of another person, can also apply for a companion pass.

Applying online is the quickest way of applying and you will need to provide:

  1. A passport photograph or similar (check our guidelines on photos)
  2. Proof of residency
  3. Proof of identity
  4. Proof of disability
