Bus Services: Concessions

Volume 495: debated on Tuesday 7 July 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport how many pensioners in Hemel Hempstead received concessionary bus passes in the latest period for which figures are available. (284424)

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

Hemel Hempstead is part of the Hertfordshire County concessionary travel scheme. The last information held by the Department was that as of 17 April 2009, the Hertfordshire County scheme had issued 141,099 of the new smartcard concessionary passes. This includes passes issued to disabled people as well as those aged 60 and over.
