Bus Services: Concessions

Volume 495: debated on Monday 6 July 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport how many pensioners resident in Milton Keynes received concessionary bus passes in the latest period for which figures are available. (283684)

The Department for Transport is not responsible for issuing passes and so does not maintain records of how many passes individual authorities have issued.

The last information held by the Department was that as of 17 April 2009, Milton Keynes local authority had issued approximately 25,000 of the new smartcard concessionary passes. This includes applications from disabled people as well as those aged 60 and over.
