Bus passes II
There might be something in my earlier post on travel passes. I have been doing a little research and it appears that the new CBT Act (Concessionary Bus Travel Act) which comes into force on 1st April will help many people. But! It sets out minimum requirements; there is no requirement for local authorities who at present provide services above the minimum to continue to do so. Without a statement from West Midlands local authorities we should be vigilant. I know with my own local authority that pensioners are distrusting of their motives. So if you hear of any changes to our scheme please post it here. I will be monitoring it and lobbying my councillors.
