There are a number of reduced-rate travel services available to people living in the City of London. Read on to find out what is available and how to apply.
The Freedom Pass offers free travel for older and disabled people on almost all public transport in London.
If you are over 60 you can download an application form from the London Councils website. You will need to fill this in and take it along with the requested documents to your local Post Office.
If you are disabled, you can see if you’re eligible for a Freedom Pass by contacting the City of London’s contact centre on 020 7332 1224.You can also find an application form for a disabled person's freedom pass here (83kb)
Once assessed as eligible, you will get an authorisation letter, which you will have to take with other relevant documents to the post office. Please visit the London Councils website for more information.
Taxicard is a scheme that provides subsidised travel for people who have serious mobility impairment and difficulty in using public transport.
Taxicard holders make journeys in licensed London taxis and private hire vehicles, and the subsidy applies directly to each trip.
If you think you are eligible for this, please call us on 020 7332 1224 for an application.
If you are disabled and can't use public transport, try Dial-a-Ride. It's free, door-to-door, and great for getting out and about. You will need to visit the Transport for London website to find out more about becoming a member, which is also free.
