Freedom Pass: Three ladies who bus


Three retired women travelling every bus route in London star in a film on the Freedom Pass, a London scheme offering free travel to older and disabled passengers across all modes.  

 

11 June 2013 - The ‘Ladies Who Bus’, who travel all the way along every bus route in London using the Freedom Pass, are filmed as they gather information for their blog on a journey.

 

This film is about informing people about the scheme, what it is, how they can apply for it, and where they can use it… and features the specially choreographed Bus Stop Dance, performed by six dancers aged between 58 and 80.

 

Ran by London Councils on behalf of all 33 local authorities, the Freedom Pass allows 1.3 million older and eligible disabled Londoners to travel free on the capital’s buses, trains, London Underground, trams, and the Docklands Light Railway, as well as local buses across the country.

 

The chair of London Councils’ Transport and Environment Committee, Councilor Catherine West said: “During their travels, the ladies talk about the freedom that their passes offer and explain how the Freedom Pass, which has been run and paid for by London boroughs for more than 20 years, helps older and disabled people Londoners to maintain their independence.”

 

Freedom Pass is Europe’s most comprehensive concessionary travel scheme which is used by more than 1.3million older and disabled Londoners.
