FREE BUS PASSES Since April 2008 everyone who is resident in England and who is eligible based on their age or eligible disabled has been entitled to a free annual bus pass giving free off-peak travel on local buses anywhere in England. 'Off-peak' is between 9.30am and 11pm Monday to Friday and all day at weekends and on public holidays. Local authorities may offer further benefits to their residents, such as free travel outside off-peak times or reduced tram or rail travel. However, these will apply only for travel in the local area, not elsewhere in England.
