Gold Card 2017

Gold Card is our travel, discount and library card for older people and people with certain disabilities.

Free bus travel

Gold Card allows you to travel free, off-peak on local buses throughout the whole of England, after 9.30am up to 11pm weekdays and at any time during weekends and bank holidays.

Gold Card holders can also travel free-of-charge on Derbyshire Connect Dial-a-Bus 'shopping' buses.


Your Gold Card gives your discounts at more than 700 businesses in and around Derbyshire, including shops, restaurants hotels and services.

Library card

Your Derbyshire Gold Card can also be used as a library card at all Derbyshire and Derby City libraries. Just hand it to a member of library staff the first time you want to use it and they will register your details.

Change of circumstances

If you've changed address, someone has died or your Gold Card is no longer required, please contact your district, borough or Derby City Council.
