Welsh Government has issued a consultation on:
Mandatory Concessionary Fares Scheme in Wales: Maintaining free bus travel for older people, disabled people and injured service veterans.
The document is available on the internet at https://consultations.gov.wales/consultations/mandatory-concessionary-fares-scheme-wales
Extract from consultation document:
“An increasingly ageing and active population requires that careful consideration is given to whether continuation of the scheme is financially viable and sustainable into the future. On this basis, we are seeking views on how best access to free bus travel in Wales can be maintained into the future, or whether some level of financial contribution should be made by passengers towards the cost of bus travel undertaken”
Deadline for responses: 12 January 2018
