Travel updates for Older Person’s Freedom Pass and 60+ passengers during morning peak hours.

In response to the pandemic, Transport for London(TFL) has set out details of the temporary changes affecting holders of the Older Person’s Freedom Pass, 60+ Oyster photocard and  English National Concessionary Scheme. The temporary changes, will be in effect from Monday 15 June.

Key points to note:

  • Changes are in accordance with the funding and finance agreement between TfL and Government and will help conserve space on public transport for people who have to use it to return to work.
  • The changes affect part of the scheme that TfL funds. London Councils and the boroughs do not fund journeys during the morning peak and have not had a say in making these changes.
  • Disabled Freedom Pass holders are unaffected and will still able to travel at all times using their pass
  • From Monday 15 June, changes to the ticketing system will mean Older Person’s Freedom Pass and 60+ cards are automatically set not to be valid during the morning peak period (0430 to 0900) Monday to Friday.
  • Older Person’s Freedom Pass and 60+ card remain valid after 9.00am on weekdays and at all times at weekends and Bank Holidays
  • All passengers are reminded to only use public transport if absolutely essential and maintain two metres social distancing wherever possible
