Bus Passes for older and disabled people – Essex – Where to apply, renew or find more information
Essex’s older or disabled residents can get free bus travel under the ENCTS (the English National Concessionary Travel Scheme). This page includes a link to the online application form and information on applying.
Anyone who is eligible for a bus pass but who can’t travel unassisted may also be able to get a ‘companion pass’. This will allow their carer to travel free within the Essex Council administrative area.
These passes are ENCTS (the English National Concessionary Travel Scheme) passes issued by Essex Council and allow travel anywhere within England on local bus services.
