A single assessment was introduced in August 2011 to simplify the application process for Blue Badges, Taxicards and Freedom Passes. To see if you qualify for the Blue Badge, Taxicard or Freedom Pass look at Harrow's eligibility policy statement.
The Blue Badge Scheme, also known as the European Parking Badge Scheme, is a scheme for drivers and passengers with a severe disability. Blue Badge holders are entitled to a range of parking concessions. For example you can park on single or double yellow lines for up to three hours in England and Wales, except where there is a ban on loading or unloading. For information on where you can or cannot park with a blue badge please read: The Blue Badge scheme: rights and responsibilities in England.

Disabled and Discretionary Freedom Pass holders can travel free Monday to Friday on buses, London Underground, National Rail, DLR and Trams after 9:30am and at any time at the weekend. The Older Persons Freedom Pass for people aged 65+ is processed through London Councils. If you are aged 60 or over and do not qualify for the Freedom Pass, you can apply for the 60+ Oyster London Photocard.

London Taxicard Scheme
The Taxicard is a London wide door-to-door licensed taxi and private hire vehicle service. Harrow members can take a maximum of 40 trips per year. It is available for those who have difficulty in using mainstream public transport such as tubes, buses and trains, and serious long-term mobility problems, or severe sight impairment.
