You will also need proof that you live in Portsmouth (such as a council tax bill, housing benefit, rent book, electoral registration or utility bill), and a passport-quality colour photograph. Your photograph must show your head and shoulders only, without head gear, (except on religious or medical grounds) front facing and alone.
Apply online for an older persons bus pass. You will need to check you are eligible - you can do this using the state age pension calculator.
