If you are a permanent resident in Warrington of state pension age you can apply for one travel concession, either an older person’s bus pass or a senior railcard. We are only able to issue you with one or the other.
If you would like both, you can apply for an older person's bus pass from us and purchase a Senior Railcard from National Rail, please see their website for more information.
Bus passes are issued free of charge and are valid for five years.
Applying for a bus pass
Step 1 – check if you’re eligible

Step 2 – check what you need before you apply

You’ll need to have a photo of each of these, or have them scanned onto your computer, phone or tablet, so that you can upload them to your online application form.
