Concessionary Bus Passes

West Yorkshire Metro has a range of concessionary travel passes to help you make the most of public transport across the region. This includes people of pensionable age, blind people and disabled people.



Senior Pass

If you are aged 65 or over and a West Yorkshire resident you can apply for a Metro Senior Pass. These are supplied by West Yorkshire Metro. To find out if you are eligible, how to apply and the benefits you will receive, visit Senior Pass on Metro's website. If you are eligible there is no need to apply for a Disabled person's pass as both give the same fare concessions.

‘Blind’ is defined as having a high degree of vision loss; for example seeing much less than is normal or perhaps seeing nothing at all.

Travel assistance cards

Let transport staff know if you need extra assistance when travelling.

Travel assistance cards have been designed to help disabled and older people when using public transport, and can be particularly helpful for people with hidden disabilities such as visual impairments or learning disabilities, and for people who are afraid of falling. You can use the card to let the bus driver know about any requirements you may have when getting on the bus.​​​​​
