Older Person's Freedom Pass (OPFP)

What is the Older Person's Freedom Pass (OPFP)?

The Older Person’s Freedom Pass is a travel pass that allows Camden’s older residents free travel within the London area.

The pass is valid on all London Transport.

Am I eligible?

You will no longer qualify for a Freedom Pass on your 60th birthday if you were born after 6 April 1950. This is due to the government’s gradual change to the state pension qualifying age for women. The changes affect both men and women equally.

Please go to the eligibility checker on the London Councils website.

If you live in Camden you can make an application for an Older Persons Freedom Pass up to 14 days before you become eligible.

Transport for London offer an Oyster card for those aged 60 and over. Please see link for further information: 60+ Oyster Card 

When is the pass valid?

The Older Persons Freedom Pass is valid 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

However, for National Rail services within Greater London, the pass is valid only after 9.30am on weekdays, but is valid all day on weekends and public holidays.

The pass can also be used on many other bus services throughout England, as part of the English national concessionary travel scheme (ENCTS).

Where are the pass boundaries?

More information about the Older Persons Freedom Pass can be obtained from the Freedom Pass website

How much does it cost?

The pass is free. If the pass is used on national railways to travel beyond the greater London area, the extra onward cost of the journey must be paid before boarding the train.
