If you live permanently in the West Midlands county and meet certain criteria you may be entitled to a free travel pass from Centro.

How do I know if I am eligible for a free travel pass?

Centro can issue passes to people who qualify under any of the seven categories of disability defined by the Transport Act 2000.

The qualifying conditions of the seven categories are very specific and your disability must be long term.

The seven categories are:

  1. Registered blind or partially sighted.
  2. Severely or profoundly deaf
  3. Without speech
  4. Disability or injury which has a substantial and adverse effect on ability to walk
  5. Loss of the use of both arms or without arms
  6. Learning disability
  7. Would be refused a licence to drive a motor vehicle, or have had a licence withdrawn, because of:
      • Uncontrolled epilepsy
      • Severe mental disorder
      • Liable to sudden attacks of giddiness or fainting
      • Established dementia conditions

If you have reached the age of entitlement and live in the West Midlands County, you are entitled to free travel which means you can use one of the best public transport networks in the country.

So, whether you’re travelling to the shops, visiting friends and family or enjoying a day out at one of the many attractions in the West Midlands, your travel pass will help you make the most of your leisure time or retirement.

You can apply up to one month before you reach the age of entitlement.

This also applies if you are an older person and have recently moved into the Centro area.

To qualify for the pass issued by Centro you must live permanently in the West Midlands county (Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall or Wolverhampton) and have reached the age of entitlement (see table below).
