Coronavirus: Elderly to benefit from Suffolk County Council bus pass changes
Elderly and disabled people will be able to use their concessionary bus passes at earlier times, Suffolk County Council announced today.
Previously, these passes could only be used from 9.30am once the morning rush hour had cleared, but now they can be used on early morning services too.
Councillor Andrew Reid, Suffolk County Council’s Cabinet Member responsible for Highways, Transport and Rural Affairs, said: "I’m very grateful to our bus companies in Suffolk who have worked with us to extend the use of bus passes on their services before 9.30am. This is something that will be extremely helpful during a time when some shops are opening for periods specifically for the older generation and the most vulnerable to support them during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic."
