National bus pass for older and disabled people unveiled

Published: Wed, 19 Sep 2007 11:10:44

Transport Secretary Ruth Kelly on 18 September 2007 unveiled the new pass that will give older and disabled people free off-peak bus travel across England from 1st April, 2008.

Currently, people aged 60 and over and eligible disabled people are entitled to free off-peak bus travel within their own local authority area. But from April 2008 the Government will invest up to an extra £250m each year to extend the scheme to include off-peak local bus travel anywhere in England.
