Applying for a disabled person's bus pass


Blind or partially sighted (Category A)

The bus pass allows free off-peak travel on local buses throughout England for applicants with an eligible disability.

You will be eligible if

  • you are registered, or entitled to be registered, as blind or severely sight impaired, or
  • you are registered, or entitled to be registered, as partially sighted or sight impaired.

Proving that you are eligible

You can do this by providing a copy of one of the following:

  • A current East Sussex Blue Badge which is valid for at least 6 months. The bus pass will only be valid for the term of the Blue Badge.
  • A certificate of visual impairment (CVI) which confirms you are severely sight impaired (blind) or sight impaired (partially sighted). 
  • A signed letter or form from a consultant ophthalmologist, that you qualify to be registered as severely sight impaired (blind) or sight impaired (partially sighted).
