Applicants will need to provide a passport-sized photo (unless applying in person), plus proof (dated within the last six months) that they are a Lincolnshire resident and that they are of an age or have a disability which will qualify them for a pass.
Eligibility is determined by pension age and the date you will be eligible for a bus pass will depend on the month in which you were born and it will not fall on your birthday.
You can enter your date of birth at https://www.gov.uk/state-pension-age to find out when you are eligible to receive a bus pass.

- Does not have arms or has long term loss of the use of both arms;
- Has a learning disability, that is, a state of arrested or incomplete development of mind which includes significant impairment of intelligence and social functioning;
- Has a moderate to severe disability and would, if applied for the grant of a licence to drive a motor vehicle under Part III of the Road Traffic Act 1988, have your application refused pursuant to section 92 of that Act (physical fitness) otherwise than on the grounds of persistent misuse of drugs or alcohol.
