Councillor Rob Humby, Deputy Leader and Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment at Hampshire County Council said: “As schools and colleges prepare to open for greater numbers of children and young people from 8 March, we can expect travel times to start to get back to more traditional peak periods. It seems the right time to revert to the usual operating hours for bus passes for older people, helping to ensure bus operators have the capacity to provide journeys to those who need to travel to school and college by bus.”
Older Persons Concessionary Bus Passes are available for people who have reached State Pension age. The older person’s bus pass entitles people to free travel on bus services throughout England from 9:30am to 11pm Monday to Friday and all day at weekends and on public holidays.
