The Freedom Pass is a travel pass for disabled people allowing free travel across London and free bus journeys nationally.
To be eligible for a disabled person's Freedom Pass you should be aged at least 5 years, live in London and have one of the disabilities specified in the Transport Act 2000. These include people who:
- are blind or partially sighted
- are profoundly or severely deaf
- are without speech
- have a disability, or have suffered an injury, which has left them with a substantial and long-term adverse effect on their ability to walk
- do not have arms or have a long-term loss of the use of both arms
- have a learning disability that is defined as 'a state of arrested or incomplete development of mind which includes significant impairment of intelligence and social functioning'
- if they applied for the grant of a licence to drive a motor vehicle under Part III of the Road Traffic Act 1988, would have their application refused pursuant to section 92 of the Act (physical fitness) otherwise than on the ground of persistent misuse of drugs or alcohol.
