Apply for a disabled person's travel pass

If you don’t automatically qualify for a disabled pass with Travel South Yorkshire, you can apply to us. If you can prove you meet additional criteria we'll issue a letter of entitlement.

Automatic qualification with Travel South Yorkshire

Apply with Travel South Yorkshire if you receive:

  • Higher rate mobility component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
  • Personal Independence Payment (PIP) with an award of at least 8 points in either Moving Around or Communicating Verbally
  • War Pensioner’s mobility supplement
  • A Blue badge parking permit

If you don’t automatically qualify

We can issue a letter that will entitle you to a free disabled pass if you can provide evidence that you.

  • are blind or partially sighted
  • are deaf
  • are without speech
  • have a disability or suffered an injury, which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on your ability to walk
  • do not have arms or have lost the use of your arms
  • would be denied a driving licence on medical grounds (but not drugs or alcohol misuse)
  • have a learning disability (local council registered)

If eligible and in receipt of certain higher level benefits, you may qualify for a ‘with carer’ pass. A carer can then travel with you free of charge.

What the travel pass entitles you to

A disabled person's travel pass entitles people to free travel at all times within South Yorkshire on:

  • local bus services, trams and trains
  • Northern Rail services between South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire
  • buses throughout England at off-peak times. (These are between 9.30am and 11pm weekdays, all day at weekends and on Bank Holidays)

Travel passes are issued free of charge by Travel South Yorkshire.
