Applications for Disabled Persons Freedom passes are handled by the Boroughs who own the Freedom Pass scheme. TfL’s involvement is restricted to supplying smartcards for the Boroughs to issue then ensuring they are accepted on their services once issued. TfL promotes available concessions to young and disabled people on its website and through other communications channels, including face to face engagement.
