I have just discovered via my wonderful mother in law that I may qualify for a Nowcard disability bus pass. So I went to have a look on the site and for walking problems it requires proof of disability at high rate mobility. As mine was awarded indefinitely back in 2001 we had no idea what rate I was actually getting. Anyway, back then I had a fad for filing things up so I knew exactly where to find the papers I needed. And sure enough it is High rate mobility. So I am off to the local council office next week. Apparently they take your photo and there is no need to fill a form in, they do it all as long as you show them proof. So for free travel after 9.30am and flat rate of 50p per journey before that, I thought I may as well go for it. It would be so nice if people in authority told us these things would it not? xxxxx
