I know many disabled people are aware of this, but many others are not. Being epileptic, I cannot drive, in case I had a seizure at the wheel, but because of this reason I am entitled to a bus pass & a railcard to get around. Free travel on the buses, which can be used individually or you can get one to use with your companion/carer & a 1/3 knocked off rail fares, which can also be used with a companion/carer/friend. They are useful when you want to go out.

    Iv put this on here a few times. 
    Iv had both cards since the 90s. And yes they are very useful.
    I was told im too disabled to drive so the csrds  are a good way to get around.

    My disabled rail card costs £20 per year but is worth it for the third off saving. Also got my bus pass a few years a go. The bus pass lasts for 5 years.
