Default if you are over 65...

In London, tubes and buses are free for London over 65 residents;
London is still free for 0ver 60's residents (provided that they
have applied for the appropriate pass)

Climbing on my soapbox for a moment - I do not think schemes like free
bus passes are a good idea. The costs of providing these schemes have to
be paid for somehow

They more than pay for themselves in improved health (hence reduced
care and medical bills) for retired people who use the buses to get
out doing things that they otherwise couldn't afford.

If you live in some barbaric ******** where the elderly don't get
any care or medical assistance out of the public purse the figures
probably look different.
