Consultation on Concessionary Bus Fares
The Welsh Assembly Government are considering making changes to the administration and eligibility for free bus passes. While the consultation provides significant historical data about the use of bus passes, it is seriously deficient in providing any assessment of what implications the proposed changes would have, either in terms of its impact on people or money that would be saved.
In the absence of any impact assessment from the Minister, we have, nonetheless, tried to provide an objective response to the questions posed.
There is still time to make your own response, which must be received by 12th January.
The Forum have given this topic extensive consideration and have made our input to the Minister. You can read our response HERE.
