Gold Card

Gold Card is the travel, discount and library card for people of pensionable age and some disabled people.  Gold Card allows for free, off-peak, England-wide local bus travel.  Card holders also get discounts at around 1,300 local businesses and can use it to borrow at all local libraries.

What is Gold Card?

Gold Card allows you to travel free, off-peak on local buses throughout the whole of England, get discounts at around 1,000 shops and other local businesses and to borrow at all Derbyshire and Derby city libraries.

Gold Card holders can also use community transport dial-a-bus services. You will be charged a £1 flat-rate single fare (£2 return). It doesn't matter how far you travel on a dial-a-bus, the fare is the same.

Who can get a Gold Card?

Anyone over 60 (depending on your date of birth) can have a Gold Card − the travel, discount and library card for Derbyshire residents. It is a blue-striped card.

Some younger people, with certain disabilities, can also have a Gold Card. It is an orange-striped card.
