If you live in Warwickshire and were born, on or before 5 April 1953 you are eligible for a concessionary bus pass.
If you were born after 5 April 1953, check the age at which you become eligible by using the older person’s concessionary bus pass eligibility checker which will tell you when you will become eligible for a bus pass.
The bus pass can be used for free off-peak bus travel in England.
If your main home is outside Warwickshire then you are not eligible for a Warwickshire bus pass.
