  Concessionary Bus Pass reform
Posted by: Walton 46 - 28/07/2019 12:06 - Replies (22)

In July 2019, the Welsh Government announced that age at which people in Wales become eligible for a free bus pass would increase from 60 to stage pension age (65 now and 67 by 2028). The Welsh Government cites the rising cost of providing the passes as the reason for the change in eligibility.

Both inside and outside of Wales, there is a lot of people who think the current concessionary pass system is not fit or purpose and is in need of reform. Bus operators complain they are not getting sufficiently reimbursed for pensioners using their passes as the reimbursement rates are based on the price of a single fare in the mid-2000s and are thus, out of date. Whilst local authorities are saying because of a reduction in government subsides for pensioners passes, they are having to divert funding from other areas such as school services in order to provide free travel for pensioners.

What do you think?

  Proposed Major Changes to Roads in Liverpool
Posted by: Nwales Bus - 18/06/2019 11:10 - Replies (2)

Major changes are proposed to buses in Liverpool as the council re develope the road network across the city

According to Liverpool Echo, half of the city centre’s bus routes will be affected

Quote:Routes affected
7, 10B, 12, 13, 14, 14A, 14B, 14X, 14&14A (Halton), 15, 17, 18, 19, 20, 20X, 21, 61, 75, 76, 78, 79, 79C, 79D, 80, 80A, 82

Withdrawn routes
55D, 82C, 82D, 86D

Quote:Close to half the bus routes into Liverpool city centre are set to be overhauled in a radical move that will affect thousands of travellers.

The major new proposals, announced by Merseytravel this morning, are set to come into force next January - but passengers will get a chance to give their views on them from today until later this summer.

It's believed that around 11,000 passengers a day will be affected by the move, which is happening in tandem with the council's £45m Liverpool City Centre Connectivity Scheme - and could see passengers forced to walk further distances to get to their daily destinations.

It is proposed that a free shuttle bus wil operate between Queen Square and Liverpool One during the distruption

A consultation is now online on Merseytravel website until 2nd August
