If you live in the Devon County Council area (it must be your sole or principal residence) you can apply for a National Bus Pass.
There are two types of pass: those issued to older residents and those issued to applicants with certain disabilities.
The date of eligibility for the National Bus Pass – for both men and women – is linked to the age at which a woman becomes eligible for a state pension. Please refer to the table on this link to check the date at which you will become eligible for your bus pass.
You may be eligible for a National Bus Pass if you have a disability that is considered permanent, or is likely to last at least 12 months. The disability should have a substantial effect on your ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.
There are seven disability categories:
- Blind or partially sighted
- Profoundly or severely deaf
- Without speech
- Severe difficulty in walking
- Without arms or has a long-term loss of the use of both arms
- Learning Disability
- Unfit to hold a driving licence
