Older person's travel discounts

If you're of state retirement age, you can apply for either a free bus pass or taxi tokens

Bus Pass

Apply to Bucks County Council for a free bus pass.

Alternatively, you may be eligible for taxi tokens instead of a bus pass.

Taxi token scheme

Eligible residents may apply for £90 of taxi tokens from 1 April 2017 – 31 March 2018

The tokens are issued to help people of pensionable age or with disabilities to make essential journeys.

You are eligible for tokens if you are:

  • resident within the Aylesbury Vale District Council area or live in a village or area listed here.
  • in receipt of the state pension or have reached the pensionable age of a woman born on the same day as you

and

  • you cannot use buses because of disability or fraility - either because you are unable to board a bus or because you are unable to walk to or from a bus stop at either end of the journey

or

  • you have a disability as defined by the Disability Discrimination Act

The scheme is not available to people who have access to their own private transport.

If you live in the north of Aylesbury Vale and are having difficulty finding a taxi firm who will take your tokens please contact us on 01296 585605

We are currently reviewing our concessionary travel scheme to consider how this should be provided in the future. 

For more information, apply online or download and print an application form.

If you have a transportation need while you’re waiting for your application to be processed, contact the Community Transport Hub who may be able to help you.
