Passengers welcome free bus pass travel campaign
17 July 2023
Welcoming the Department for Transport’s campaign to encourage older and disabled people to use their free bus pass, Transport Focus Director, David Sidebottom, said:
“Passengers tell us that buses are a vital lifeline to help them see family and friends, visit high streets, get to essential appointments and connect them to the places and things they love. This campaign is great news for bus pass holders and, hopefully, they will take full advantage to get out and about and travel to places old and new.
“In Transport Focus’s forthcoming research, 91% of free pass holders told us they knew a fair amount about their local bus service, so now is a great time to give it a go and take the bus.”
