    Hi, if you search who is entitled to bus pass you will get the search page where a .gov link shows, the link should take you to Directgov website, that's the one you want to look at to find out more.

    Briefly you are eligible if you live in England and have a long term chronic condition such as COPD, however the bus pass is only for use during off peak times on local buses in England.

    Hope that helps.

    PS On the Directgov website it also gives information about bus passes in Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

    I have a bus pass for my emphysema (copd). Unlike the oap pass it has no time restrictions to enable disabled folks to go to work. You can get the form from your libary

    Likely it varies from county to county.

    Thanks for sharing.
