Disability Discounts

London Freedom Pass

The London Freedom Pass is available for anyone living in London over 60 years or an eligible disability (as listed in the Transport Act 2000).

It allows free travel across London and free bus journeys nationally.

To apply for a Freedom Pass you need to contact your borough for an application form.

If the borough confirm your eligibility you can take this confirmation to a Post Office with a passport photo, proof of identity and address.

Some borough's offer discretionary Freedom Passes to disabled people who do not meet the statutory eligibility requirements.

Carers are not eligible for the Freedom Pass.

Taxicard Scheme

The London Taxicard Scheme provides door to door transport for disabled people who live in London and find it hard to use public transport.  They can be used anytime 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.

The Taxicard gives a discount on the taxi fare - the exact amount varies between London boroughs.  

All black cabs are wheelchair accessible with ramps for wheelchair users. Taxicard holders can take up to four other people with them at no extra cost.

Applications for the Taxicard must be made through your London borough.
