These documents are:
- the form to apply for concessionary travel schemes
- a guide to help applicants make their application
The Department for Transport (DfT) appoints independent decision makers to determine such applications on behalf of the Secretary of State for Transport.
Forms are sent to both operators and travel concession authorities (TCAs).
The Mandatory Travel Concession (England) Regulations 2011, which came into force on 12 May 2011, state in Regulation 25 that the Secretary of State for Transport may request the applicant operator, TCA or both to submit further documents as he may direct. This includes the data form which should be completed in accordance with the department’s current guidance.
