The freebustravel.co.uk 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 / freedom pass holders, e.g. where would I apply for my Bus Pass? and also information on issues affecting the over 60s in the UK and the disabled.
The bus pass schemes which exist now in England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland are quite topical, and funding issues at local authority level remain a strong topic for discussion. We’d like to see a scheme which is popular and well used continue in its present form.
Anyhow we are doing our best to flag up in this blog what is being said and done on this issue, and to represent bus pass users views. We hope that others will give their views!
