TfL Please Offer Me a Seat Badge

Transport for London have launched the ‘Please offer me a seat’ badge and card for those people who are older, disabled or have health conditions & who find it difficult to stand when using public transport, but there need is not immediately obvious. The badge and card remove the awkwardness of customers having to explain their need for a seat to others.

The free badge and card are now available through our website:

or by calling us on 0343 222 1234.

There are no qualifying criteria – applicants do not need to provide a GP’s note or their medical history. The badge and card can be used across their network on London Underground, London Overground, Buses, Docklands Light Railway, TfL Rail, Trams and River Services.

TfL will be using hashtag #Pleaseoffermeaseat on Twitter, and we would welcome any re-tweets to help spread the word about this important new initiative.

To find out more about how we are making London’s transport network more accessible, please visit including information about support from staff, maps, guides and leaflets, and other accessible features. You can also follow TfL on Twitter at @TfLAccess (
