Bus Services: Concessions

Volume 503: debated on Wednesday 6 January 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport how many (a) over-60 year olds and (b) disabled people in Nottingham North constituency made use of free off-peak bus travel in the latest period for which figures are available. (309025)

The Department for Transport does not maintain records of how many people in local authorities are in receipt of a concessionary bus pass as concessionary travel is administered locally by travel concession authorities (TCAs).

The last information held by the Department was that as of 17 April 2009, 69,597 of the new smartcard concessionary passes had been issued in Nottingham. This includes applications from disabled people as well as those aged 60 and over.
