There is an enhancement to the Diamond Travelcard scheme, which is known as the Platinum Travelcard.

The Platinum Travelcard is for residents of South Gloucestershire, who are severely sight impaired or sight impaired.

Platinum Travelcard holders will be able travel free of charge at all times, however any journeys commencing before 9am, must start within South Gloucestershire.

How to apply for a Platinum Travelcard

If you are severely sight impaired or sight impaired, you can still apply for a Platinum Travelcard. You will need to complete our Platinum Short Application form and provide a copy of one of the following:

  • Certificate of Visual Impairment (or DB8 form)
  • registration card (both sides) if you are registered with another local authority
  • letter from your eye specialist confirming that you would be considered severely sight impaired or sight impaired

You can also apply by phone by calling 01454 868004.

If you have moved address since you last received your Diamond Travelcard, let us know as soon as possible.

If the Travelcard holder passes away, then the executor or administrator of the estate should let us know and return the Travelcard to us.
