Gold Cards allow people to travel free on local buses throughout England (off peak). It gives them discounts at more than 1,300 shops and allows them to borrow at all Derbyshire and Derby city libraries in Derbyshire. To use it as a library card, cardholders will need to activate their membership. They can do this by handing their card to library staff who will register it as a library card.
Anyone born on or after 6 April 1955 will get their Gold Card on their 65th birthday. Check the online calculator to find out when you become eligible for a Gold Card.
Free bus travel applies to trips on local buses anywhere in England at off-peak times. Off-peak is after 9.30am and up to 11.00pm weekdays and at anytime weekends and bank holidays. However, free bus travel does not apply to long-distance express services (such as National Express services), special tours and excursions, nor does it apply in Wales and Scotland.
Before 9.30am weekdays all Gold cardholders will have to pay full fare on the bus. Free bus travel also applies to community transport dial-a-bus services within Derbyshire and Derby City, but this is only available to Derbyshire Residents (Gold Cardholders).
Further information on how to apply is available on the Derbyshire County Council website.
