A disabled person's travel pass enables free public transport for those who qualify within the South Yorkshire area. This is open to people aged 5 to 66 years old.
You may be able to qualify for a permit if you:
- are registered blind, partially sighted
- are registered profoundly deaf
- are unable to speak
- have a learning disability registered with Social Services
- have substantial and long-term disabilities or injuries which severely impacts your ability to walk
- are a current blue badge holder
- have lost the use of both arms
- are unable to drive because of a health problem, such as autism or epilepsy
- have, or currently suffer from, a psychiatric disorder, or have an enhanced level care programme approach
If you receive PIP enhanced level, DLA higher rate care or higher rate attendance allowance, you may qualify to have a carer travel with you free of charge.
If your application is successful, most passes are issued for 5 years. However, where your supporting evidence/eligibility has an end date, your pass will be issued up to that date.
