Bus passes and railcards

Free bus passes or railcards from West Sussex County Council
If you are a West Sussex resident and have reached the state pension age for females – whether you are male or female – you can obtain either a free one- year Senior Railcard (allowing you to purchase train fares at a discount) or a free older persons bus pass from West Sussex County Council.
Note: free senior railcards will not be offered after the 31st October 2020, but bus passes will.

WSCC also offers a free bus pass for someone with a disability OR a free one-year disabled persons railcard.

You can only obtain either a free bus pass or a free railcard from WSCC, not both.
Applications must be made direct to WSCC for a free bus pass or railcard.

Purchase of senior or disabled railcards
If you choose to have a free bus pass, you can still purchase a senior or disabled persons railcard. A senior railcard costs £30 for one year, or £70 for a 3-year card. Senior railcards can be purchased by anyone who is 60 years old or older. A disabled persons railcard costs £20 for one year and £54 for a 3-year card.

Discount on purchase of railcard
Mid Sussex District Council allows eligible residents of Mid Sussex of state pension age to purchase a one-year senior railcard for the discounted price of £24, or a disabled persons card for the discounted price of £18.
You can obtain a discount code to enable you to purchase a one-year railcard at the lower price from the Village Council office.

Note: There are no discounts for 3-year cards, but it is marginally cheaper to buy a full-priced 3-year senior card than three one-year discounted cards, and it costs the same to buy a 3-year disabled persons pass as three one-year discounted cards.

The discount code to enable you to obtain a discount on a one-year railcard is issued by the Village Council office.
