You’ve got no money but you’re choosing to pay for free bus passes.

We are not choosing to pay for concessionary bus passes. By law, The Council must administer and fund the scheme which allows those eligible for bus passes to travel for free in the off peak period. We know that many people would be happy to pay for bus travel, but the Government would have to change the scheme. We are proposing to reduce our costs by removing the free pass given to companions of disabled users. There are currently 635 holders of these passes.
