ENCTS Disabled Person
The English National Concession Travel Scheme (ENCTS) entitles disabled people to free off peak travel on buses across England (plus additional concessions in South Yorkshire).
What do I need to apply?
- Proof of age
For online applications you will need your driving license or passport number, or a scanned copy of a proof of age document such as a birth certificate or medical card. If you are applying by post you must send a photocopy of one of these documents.
- A recent passport style photograph
- Your proof of entitlement
For online applications you will need to provide a scanned copy of this proof and for postal applications a photocopy.
Your proof of entitlement may be:
- A letter of entitlement from your district council
- A DLA letter showing that you’ve been awarded Higher Rate Mobility Component,
- A letter from DWP showing that you’ve been awarded PIP with an award of at least 8 points in either “Moving Around” or “Communicating Verbally”,
- Proof that you receive War Pensioners Mobility Supplement,
- Proof that you have been awarded a “Blue Badge”, or
- A Mental Health Transport Concessions form signed and stamped by your psychiatrist (Barnsley only).
Within South Yorkshire your ENCTS Disabled Person's pass will entitle you to free travel at all times on:
- local bus services, trams and trains
- Northern train services between South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire.
In all other parts of England, South Yorkshire passes can be used for free travel on bus services between 0930 and 2300 weekdays and all day weekends and Bank Holidays. They are not valid on tram services outside of South Yorkshire.
You will need to provide proof of your age, proof of eligibility and will need to provide a passport size photograph as this pass requires a photocard.
If you live outside South Yorkshire, you need to apply to the local authority that covers your usual place of residence.
