Freedom Pass can be used immediately on 10/03/2010
London TravelWatch has reminded Freedom Pass holders that their new Freedom Passes can be used immediately.
The new Freedom Pass, which now has an electronic chip and can be used on buses nationwide, is currently being issued, and has led to some confusion among holders.
London TravelWatch said: “Many people have asked us if and when they can use their new Freedom Passes. We have had many queries via our website and at our recent visit to Romford town centre, we had a huge number of people come up to us and ask about this. Today, we are letting everyone know: You can use your new Freedom Pass immediately!”
Freedom Passes are available from the Post Office. More information can be found from the Freedom Pass website. If you live in the boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Camden or Sutton, however, you need to apply for your Freedom Pass directly.
For media enquiries, please contact the London TravelWatch press office on 020 7726 9953 or 07734 055494.
