Travel Concessions for the Over 60s

Over 60s travel concessions.

You can travel free on buses, trains and Mersey Ferries* if you are over 60 and live in Merseyside.  

When you reach the State Pension age, you will be given a new national pass, which you will also be able to use on local bus services anywhere in England. 

The pass is valid during off-peak hours (after 9.30am on Mondays to Fridays and at anytime on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays). 

*For cross river journeys only. To enjoy the full, continuous River Explorer Cruise you must buy a full River Explorer Cruise ticket from the terminal when collecting your boarding pass. 

All ticket machines on local bus services, rail stations and Mersey Ferries in Merseyside will show whether your Concessionary Pass is valid for travel. If you are told that your pass in not valid, you will need to contact us to arrange for a new pass. More information is available here.

Tell Us Once Service
Tell Us Once is a service now offered by St Helens Council and Sefton Council, on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). The service allows the bereaved person to inform central and local government services of the death at one time, rather than having to write, telephone or even attend each service individually. For further information about the Tell Us Once Service, please click here.
