Sarah,
My fellow brummie Big Grin

Centro can issue passes to people who qualify under any of the seven categories of disability defined by the Transport Act 2000.

The qualifying conditions of the seven categories are very specific and your disability must be long term.

The seven categories are:

1.Registered blind or partially sighted.
2.Severely or profoundly deaf
3.Without speech
4.Disability or injury which has a substantial and adverse effect on ability to walk
5.Loss of the use of both arms or without arms
6.Learning disability
7.Would be refused a licence to drive a motor vehicle, or have had a licence withdrawn, because of:
■Uncontrolled epilepsy
■Severe mental disorder
■Liable to sudden attacks of giddiness or fainting
■Established dementia conditions
Validity
The travel pass provides free travel Monday to Friday after 9.30am until the end of daytime service within the Network West Midlands area. It can also be used all day on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays and anytime on Ring and Ride when their service is available (if you are a registered Ring and Ride user).

You can also travel anywhere in England for free on local buses after 9.30am until 11.00pm weekdays and all day at weekends and bank holidays. This does not include coach services.

You can normally download the application form here:

But it seems to be down at the moment so maybe one of the other ways listed below:
•By post - Centro Ticketing Team, PO Box 9421, Birmingham, B19 3TR
•In person: Centro Ticketing Team, Centro House Annexe, 16 Summer Lane, Birmingham, B19 3TR†
•By phone: 0121 214 7878

Or by email by using the following form:

Nothing mentioned about carers passes however so give them a call about this.
