The Older persons Freedom Pass
An Older persons Freedom Pass lets you travel for free on London's public transport. You can use it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For National Rail services within Greater London, you can use it:
- after 9.30am on weekdays
- all day on weekends and public holidays
Before you apply you need to check if you're eligible.

You can apply up to 14 days before you become eligible.
