An Older Person’s Bus Pass entitles you to free off-peak travel on local bus services across England between 9.30am and 11.00pm Monday to Friday and all day at weekends and public holidays. You can use the bus pass on Maidstone Park & Ride, Gravesend /Tilbury Ferry and *Canterbury Park & Ride. As a general rule, the bus pass does not entitle you to free travel on scheduled coach services, ferries, trains, trams or community transport schemes, although some exceptions do apply.

You are eligible if you are a Kent resident living in Kent for more than six months per year as your sole and principal residency and are of eligible age. The age of eligibility for a bus pass in England is increasing from 60 to 65 in line with the pensionable age for women. To be eligible for an ENCTS pass on the grounds of age, you need to have reached the eligible pension age.
