Blind, Disabled & Companion Pass Benefits

Blind Passes

  • Free travel on buses, at any time of day, in West Yorkshire
  • Free travel on buses throughout the rest of England between 0930 and 2300, Monday to Friday, and all day at weekends and on public holidays.
  • Free travel on trains, at any time of day, in West Yorkshire 

Disabled Passes

  • Free off-peak travel on local bus services in West Yorkshire from 0930 to midnight, Monday to Friday and all day at weekends and on public holidays. 
  • Free travel on local bus services throughout England between 0930 and 2300, Monday to Friday, and all day at weekends and on public holidays. 
  • Half-fare, off-peak train travel within West Yorkshire. Off peak train travel is Monday to Friday after 0930 until 1600, then from 1830, and all day on weekends and public holidays. If you are travelling by train during the weekday evening peak - 1601 to 1829 - you will need to buy an Anytime Day Single or Anytime Day Return ticket.

Companion Passes

A Companion Pass entitles you and a companion to free off-peak travel on local bus services when you travel within West Yorkshire, and for journeys which start in West Yorkshire. You can also use your companion pass to travel on return cross-boundary journeys to York, North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire the East Riding of Yorkshire, and Hull. For return travel to areas not listed, the companion will be required to pay the fare to return to West Yorkshire. For example, your companion can travel free between Leeds and Manchester, but will be required to pay for the return journey from Manchester to West Yorkshire. 

Companions are not entitled to free travel for journeys made wholly outside West Yorkshire.  This means, for example, your companion can travel free between Leeds and York, but not on local journeys within York.

Your companion does not need to be the same person for every journey, but your companion cannot use the pass when travelling without you.
