This website was originated by Barrie (AKA “Ted”) & John (AKA “Fred”), 2 bus pass holders in the north east of England. The aim is to give useful information to bus pass holders and those who aspire to a bus pass.
The bus pass schemes which exist now in England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland are generally popular and funding issues at local authority level remain a strong topic for discussion.
The qualifying age for bus passes differs in the 4 parts of the UK, and Merseyside and London run local travel passes from age 60.
There’s no doubt that bus passes or Freedom Passes (in London), NOW Card (Lancashire), Travel Passes (Merseyside), Senior Pass (West Yorkshire) are very popular with pensioners and disabled people, and encourages people to get out and has an economic benefit for places of interest, shops etc
The cartoons and animations on this website are the work of Ted who has more of his work on http://bazart.me.uk/
