It is easy for the Welsh Government to offer a concessionary bus scheme because it’s local councils who are the ones who have subsidize the actual buses and cover the costs of what is obviously a totally failing policy. Unless the government is prepared to put some serious money into public transport, buses only make sense in urban areas with large working populations.
This has been a PR disaster but perhaps they also need to look at the 700,000 plus pass holders – why is it that at a fixed age of 60 everyone can have one. Certanly with higher age for retirement pensions the age of 60 does not fit. Peoples financial situation does not change at this magical number- stop issuing them till people retire.
Also Ioan the Council only pay for bus services out of their specific Transport Grant from WG – they do not normally use money from rates etc.
