Disability Travel Aids
Information regarding: Tax Card, Freedom Pass, Capital Card & Blue Badge
The London Brough of Merton offers some disability support services to residents of Merton who fit certain criterias.
The travel benefits include a Freedom pass for free Bus, British Rail and Underground travel, a Taxi & Capital Card's for discounted taxi and minicab rides and a Blue Badge for disability bay parking facilities.
Unfortunately all these need to be applied for separately. If you receive the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) Mobility component in the lower, middle or higher rate it should be relatively easy for you to obtain the above travel benefits. If you do not receive the DLA mobility component then you will need to get supporting documents from your GP. The appropriate council departments listed below should be able to help you with this.
