Concessionary Travel Scheme Consultation 2019

Start of consultation: 16 Jul 2019
End of consultation: 08 Oct 2019

Background:

A consultation has been launched on potential changes to the Island’s concessionary travel scheme.

The proposed changes do not affect free travel arrangements for older and disabled residents who wish to travel on Island buses between 9.30am and 11pm, but do affect other travel times.

Under the changes proposed free travel for a travelling companion of a disabled person would also be retained for bus journeys between 9.30am and 11pm.

If agreed through the consultation process the council could also include free travel for care leavers.

The Island’s concessionary travel scheme cost the council £4.72 million in 2017/18, for both mandatory and additional discretionary elements.

The new proposals amend the current scheme which was introduced in 2008, and would align the Island to many other parts of the country and enable the council to make savings in the process.
