If you, or someone you know, is aged 66 and over, living permanently in Ireland (State) you are entitled to the Free Travel Pass. Sometimes people under the age of 66 qualify for the scheme. If you qualify for the free travel scheme, you are issued with a travel pass that you must carry with you when using public transport. In some cases, a Free Travel Companion Pass is available. This companion travel pass allows a person to travel with the holder (if they are unable to travel alone). Free travel passes are non-transferrable and can only be used by the named person.
Free Travel Providers:
Free travel is available on all Ireland (State) public transport. This includes all Bus Eireann, Irish Rail and Luas Services. Free travel is also available on a limited number of services operated by private bus transport companies . Private bus transport operators that have opted in to the Free Travel Scheme accept free travel passes (Eurobus Limerick do not accept the travel pass).
