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 Would be refused a licence to drive a motor vehicle, or have had a licence withdrawn, because of: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
